First of all, I would strongly suggest you go here -->
and learn what PowerBroker is, and what it is not. It does not replace sudo, or root access. It allows you to customize who can run privileged commands. You can request a free trail. See the web page listed above.

Next, this is not free. There is a company selling this program.

Next, you gave us no idea what distro you are running. If you expect help with a specific distro, you have to tell us what that is.

I hope this helps you.
