How Do I Add Myself To The Sudoers Group?
 
I realise this has been asked before. But please just tell me :(

Maybe you mean wheel group.
Just add your name to group wheel then edit /etc/sudoers with command visudo and uncomment this line :

%wheel ALL=(ALL) ALL

I think that the OP might not know what he really wants.

Maybe he wants to add himself to ther sudoers file, and thought that it was some kind of group?

Is it possible to change the user from myself to root without having to log out?

Yes.


Code:

:su - root
password: xxxx
#whoami
root
#

What's Red Hat/Fedora's equivalent of gksu?

TobiSGD 04-29-2011 05:38 PM

gksu is part of the Gnome DE. It is not dependent of distribution. If you use Gnome it is always gksu, for KDE it is kdesu.

Ah! Thanks :D

I installed the KDE spin. No wonder gksu wasn't working

Use "kdesu" in KDE.
