I have had Ubuntu for a few months by now, and I have set up an administrator profile and a 'normal' account, which I use for everyday work.
Sometimes I need the admin profile, e.g. to install programs. This means that I have to switch profiles, execute whatever commands I need with
sudo through the admin profile and then go back to work.
This is rather uncomfortable, as sometimes I have got open web pages with the instructions of what I have to do on my work profile.
Is there a way to use
sudo with admin username/password while I am still logged in as 'work'?
Are there any other alternatives?
