I just made a clean install of Ubuntu 14.10, since I had a 14.04 that I had upgraded a few times. After the install, the OS asks root permissions for a lot of stuff I was able to do without issues before, such as
- rebooting or shutting down the system
- mounting the external hard drive
- sending failure reports when something breaks
Fortunately I ma a sudoer and it is just a matter of entering the password a few times, but it is starting to be annoying. How can I find out what's wrong?
