Sorry, I made a mistake, I thought I had to add my name to the sudoers file to run Software Manager. I actually do not have to. I just have to enter my administrator password when I get prompted. Seems to install fine.
And that's where my question lies:
Are there any installation issues with installing software via #2 below? I'm wondering if I'm wasting my time logging out of my desktop user login and logging in as admin just to run Software Manager every time (#1).
#1. Login as admin, run software manager and install the app.
#2. Login as my regular desktop user, run software manager, enter the administrator password when prompted, and install the app.
