Do you have other user accounts that you want to also have sudo access? Well, you can do that. You can do this multiple ways.

Also, I have only tested this in Ubuntu-based distros. I do not know if this works for other distros. My notes do not say. Please do leave a comment (preferably at the article) if you do know this information.


You can add folks to the group, and you can manually edit the sudoers file. If you do the latter, you have more control over it - but this article doesn't cover that. A future article will reference this article and go into that.

I suppose the headline should say more than 'group' due to it technically be adding them to a file which includes them with the group, but headlines can only be so long before they're just unsightly and it's close enough!
