automatix problems


I installed automatix a little while ago and it works with user 1. i recently add a new user, and it doesn't work with user 2. when i go application->system tools->automatix it asks for an administrative password. now I type in every password I have on the computer and none of them work. I'm lost and don't know what to do. I searched the automatix forums just to find many similar questions with no answers. then I asked my self and it has been a while with no response.

Since these forums are better I thought I would try here.
Thanks for whatever help you can give
If I find a solution I will answer those on the automatix forums.

You need to add your new user to the sudoers file

no, sudoer != root(sudoer does not equal to root). sudo access is when you can run a program as root, but you are not root

Ok so I understand the sudoers file more now.

I configured the file using visudo, and my soduers file looks like this now

Code:
# /etc/sudoers
#
# This file MUST be edited with the 'visudo' command as root.
#
# See the man page for details on how to write a sudoers file.
# Defaults

Defaults	!lecture,tty_tickets,!fqdn

# Uncomment to allow members of group sudo to not need a password
#
# %sudo ALL=NOPASSWD: ALL

# Host alias specification

# User alias specification

User_Alias EVERYONE = usr1

Runas_Alias OP = root, operator

# Cmnd alias specification

EVERYONE ALL = NOPASSWD: ALL

# User privilege specification
root	ALL=(ALL) ALL

# Members of the admin group may gain root privileges
%admin ALL=(ALL) ALL

usr1 desktop=NOPASSWD: /usr/bin/automatix2
I went into usr1 and installed ubuntu restricted extras and multimedia codecs but flash still doesn't work in firefox.
