how to give a user sudo privilege from command line?
Good day all, I have a bit of a problem. I adjusted some settings in the desktop settings folder in KDE. I had only one user account on the machine. Next time I rebooted I could not log into KDE (it kept bombing out). I had to log into the console. Finally I managed to create a new account with useradd but this user cannot sudo…
My problem is that my home directory is encrypted, so I need a new user with sudo privileges to delete all the kde files and folders in my original users home directory so that I can start with a new KDE setup (which won’t be a bad thing since I tinkered a lot).
How can I add sudo privileges to the new account (I presume I can do it by logging in with my sudo account in a terminal login?
Please kind ubuntu population assist me with getting my music, videos and docs back
