Hi there guys.

I've changed my notebook. So I installed aptosis-kde-lite-686 in it.
I'm facing a few doubts and I would like to ask you for help:
1ª - Whenever I try to invoke sudo something, I get this result: "user is not in the sudoers file. This incident will be reported.". How can I allow my user account to invoke it, so that I don't have to use 'su' everytime I need to update, upgrade, install, remove or something like that;
2ª - I guess this one is related to the prior: In my user account I can't write, change or delete any file in my sda4 partition (the one I use as storage);
3ª - How can I use/administrate my laptop's bluetooth?
4ª - How can I fix my keyboard's lights? The notebook is a LG R480-3700 and it has 4 lights in the keyboard (mute, decrease sound, increase sound and SRS). They keep flashing from to the fourth, just like some christmas tree.

Thx for the support guys.

It's not visudo to edit, you should edit /etc/sudoers.
You can do it by entering visudo (as root) in a terminal.

One thing you can add to sudoers:

      Code:
[user name] ALL=NOPASSWD: ALL


Lets the specified user access sudo without a password:

      Code:
[user name] ALL=PASSWD: ALL


The same thing, but with the requirement of a password.

You can also set it up so, that you only allow nopasswd access to some files:

      Code:
[user name] ALL=NOPASSWD: [file list]


After you have modified it in visudo, press ESC, enter :save and a destination(it is not possible to overwrite /etc/sudoers in visudo).

For example:

:save /etc/sudoers-new

IMPORTANT:

Do this before you overwrite /etc/sudoers with the new file or you'll never get root access again!!!


      Code:
chmod 440 [new sudoers file - here /etc/sudoers-new]


Then overwrite the /etc/sudoers with the new file.

Now sudo should be configured.

@devil:
bluedevil worked great, thx!
Here's the answer of the command ' ls -la /media/disk1part4/':
-------------------------------------------------
total 28
drwxr-xr-x 7 root root 4096 Out 19 14:07 .
drwxr-xr-x 4 root root 4096 Out 19 14:00 ..
drwxr-xr-x 21 root root 4096 Out 19 00:16 estudos
drwxr-xr-x 5 root root 4096 Out 18 22:54 filmes
drwxr-xr-x 11 root root 4096 Out 18 23:00 fotos
drwxr-xr-x 79 root root 4096 Out 18 23:53 musicas
drwxr-xr-x 7 root root 4096 Out 19 14:07 trampos
-------------------------------------------------

edit: I just solved it: went to 'konsole'; typed 'init 3'; logged as root; called 'startx'; and then changed the permissions through Dolphin, right-cliking in it, and messing in the 'properties/permissions' tab.
Thx again guys. Now I just need to find out what to do about the keyboard lights.

@sx9: it worked! thx!

well, that was the complicated way.
the easy way is, as root: chown -R your_user:your_user /media/disk1part4 Smile

I often use this, too, because I create huge files like squashfs' sometimes from USB-aptosid-systems on my fixed-aptosid-home-folder. The file has got crazy attributes (like sticky, executable or 400 [owner: read - group: nothing - else: nothing] or even 000 state Smile ) after that and the user that has owned this file doesn't exist on my HD-Installation.
I solve the attribute-problems with chmod.

[This was 'best' note I found, searching for Bluetooth. Sorry for thread hi-jack.]

A reply from Devil suggested trying the packages 'bluez' and 'bluedevil'.
Well, 'bluez' is installed by default, and that does NOT get me a bluetooth-icon in the
sys-tray, when I plug either of my two bluetooth USB-adapters in.

So, based on another reply (saying 'bluedevil' worked for them), I installed the package
'bluedevil'. Had to reboot, but THEN I DID get the bluetooth-icon in the sys-tray.

So, I figured I was 'good to go'.

Nope. The problem then, was that my cellphone (LG VX-8300)
wouldn't pair with either USB-bluetooth-adapter (tried each, sequentially, with reboots).
And, this cellphone DID previously pair with both USB-adapters,
about a year ago, under MEPIS.8.0/KDE-3.x.

Fwiw, the MEPIS-8.5 folks assert that Bluetooth/KDE-4.x has been an 'unhappy marriage'.

For another 'data-point', I booted up Kubuntu 10.04, and my USB-adapters DO cause a
Bluetooth-icon to appear in sys-tray there. (They seem to have 'bluez' loaded...no sign
at all that they've even heard of 'bluedevil'.)

When I posted a query in MEPIS forums, saying I had 'bluedevil' loaded as:
Candidate: 1.0~rc3-2
Version table:
1.0~rc3-2 0
500 http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ sid/main i386 Packages
100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

someone suggested:

"Install BlueDevil 1.0rc4, (sid is bluedevil (1.0~rc3-2))"

Anyone have Bluetooth-pairing working with a USB-bluetooth-adapter under
aptosid, who can advise what the issues might be and/or what to try?

TIA...

May I add that using sudo is not the aptosid way to do system administration. We provide a full root account - please see the relevant part in our manuals at http://manual.aptosid.com/en/term-konsole-en.htm#sudo
sudo is an advanced tool for managing rights on a multi user system, and not needed on a normal desktop system. It also needs proper configuration and knowledge, as it otherwise opens up security problems.
Greetings,
Chris
