I gave my three sisters accounts on my Ubuntu 13.10 machine with "adduser sistername".  How can I see if they are superusers or standard users and change this if necessary?

Open in new window


If you need to change it you can add them to /etc/sudoers

Sorry.  That is MY mistake.  I have a touch sensitive pad that I use rather than a regular mouse on my laptop.  I probably accidentally made it think I was clicking rather than moving.  You people always get A's from me.  The only thing I EVER had difficulty with with you was a 3D question from 2 or 3 years ago.  Please change the grade to an A if you can.  Again.that's MY mistake.
