paulmaul24sory for the double04:12
jribk, to be able to use 'sudo', you need to be in the admin group, so we'll add you back to that and then you should be able to go to "users and groups" again and check everything again for "paul"04:12
verb3k_jrib, following your conversation is really helpful for newbies (like me) thx04:13
jribto add "paul" to the "admin" group, you need to: reboot and choose "recovery mode" from the grub menu.  Then enter the command 'adduser paul admin' and reboot04:13
jribverb3k_: great, np04:13
