(SOLVED) User is not in the sudoers file. Need help.

Postby raidensub on Sat Mar 17, 2012 12:27 pm

Hi to all. I need some help. I wanted to use the incoming repo in a new install. I did a clean install using debian-6.0.4-i386-xfce+lxde-CD-1.iso and selecting lxde for DE. Then using the incoming repo i updated the system and installed the great cinnamon. My problem is that when i try sudo commands i get this:

(user) is not in the sudoers file. This incident will be reported.

Can anyone help? The guides i find online suggest to edit visudo and add =ALL for my user but i think this isn't right.
Thanks.
