if i want run a command in the terminal with sudo then come the message:

".... is not in the sudoers file. This incident will be reported"

Is the prompt in the terminal in elive different to other distros? Why is it so?
(sorry for my english, i hope you understand me)

i have found the sudo entry in the FAQ:

" Maybe you have noticed that 'sudo' not works for your installed mode but it works on the live mode ? This is just because sudo is NOT very nice for security, we have just disabled it by default, we do NOT recommend to use it, if you want to be root, just type 'su' instead of sudo.

By other side, If you really want to use sudo, you can configure it for your user, for that, type from a root terminal 'adduser yourusername sudo', then re-login again in the graphical system in order to have it working, you can also edit the file '/etc/sudoers' in order to fine-tune it, like not requesting the password (do it at your own risk)

It's tiresome for me to read too much in english. I will improvenod
