Welcome to the forum...as far as I'm concerned, this is the right place, dont worry.
Okay, SUDO means that if you do this
that you must have the rights to run somecommand
as ... root. So far you're correct in editting the sudoers, but, as you become root (temp) you try to run the command as ... root.
I want to run a script owned by another user. It should not be run by root.
As you say yourself, it should not
be run as root.
What I can suggest is two things:
- place the script in a system-wide accessible spot (/opt/somefolder for example) and set the rights to the corect group, you and the "other user" belong to a group, well then. Make sure you're both in the same user group...
- copy the script to your own space, very quick, but very-very dirty...not the cleanest plan...
Good luck with this!
