hi people

i am quite new to Linux and i have just recently had a problem where i cannot run sudo commands and the and remove app has gone from the applications menu. i think somehow my user privileges are corrupt. if i try to access uses and groups and go the unlock button it says cannot authenticate. when i try to use a sudo command, after entering my password it says "user is not in the sudoers file. This incident will be reported."

any help would be much appreciated it is quite irritating.

thanks
