I can't use sudo too, message " xxx is not in the sudoers file. This incident will be reported." Thanks. i already use my friend accout to login root and "sudo adduser sudo".

  • Do you mean you forgot your password? Adding more details would be helpful. – Chintan May 25 '15 at 15:59

if your friend is using the same computer as you get him to add you to the sudo group by

    sudo adduser <yourusername> sudo
