This question already has an answer here:
I am trying to install Skype using the command
dpkg -i skype-ubuntu-precise_184.108.40.206-1_i386.deb
It gives me a error:
dpkg: error: requested operation requires superuser privilege
How can I assign superuser privilege to current user so that I can run command without sudo?
Here is my
# # This file MUST be edited with the 'visudo' command as root. # # Please consider adding local content in /etc/sudoers.d/ instead of # directly modifying this file. # # See the man page for details on how to write a sudoers file. # Defaults env_reset Defaults mail_badpass Defaults secure_path="/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin:/snap/bin" # Host alias specification # User alias specification # Cmnd alias specification # User privilege specification root ALL=(ALL:ALL) ALL # Members of the admin group may gain root privileges %admin ALL=(ALL) ALL # Allow members of group sudo to execute any command %sudo ALL=(ALL:ALL) ALL # See sudoers(5) for more information on "#include" directives: #includedir /etc/sudoers.d
When I run the following command
sudo adduser ehsaan sudo
it gives an error:
The user `ehsaan' is already a member of `sudo'.
