man sudo

You don't want users to screw with the system. Either sudo or su - if you need to administer your system.

That's elementary security.

chiatello 07-13-2003 02:31 PM

no i really do want users to screw with the system, because i am the only user



and i already know about su, i jsut dont want to have to marrr


just how do i give my user more access, in the GUI


and i dont want as much acess as root but just more

Add the wanted groups to the users account.

See:

man usermod
