I've recently switched from Ubuntu 10.04 LTS to 12.04 LTS, and one of the changes i have noticed is that when i try to run the command ifconfig (for example to view my own ip), i get the following output:
Command 'ifconfig' is available in '/sbin/ifconfig' The command could not be located because '/sbin' is not included in the PATH environment >variable. This is most likely caused by the lack of administrative privileges associated with your >user account. ifconfig: command not found
In order to run the command, i have to run sudo ifconfig. This was not the case in 10.04, so i wonder: is there a reason for this change? Is this the expected behavior for 12.04, or is something wrong with my settings? Hopefully someone else running Ubuntu 12.04 can try running the command and see if they get the same result as me.
