Sudo Problems

·
If you're adding/removing yourself from a group in Linux, you may find yourself in this situation when you try to run sudo: 


$ sudo aptitude remove 
 is not in the sudoers file.  This incident will be reported.


Reported?  To whom?  

To spite Big Brother, run these commands: 


$ su root
$ usermod -a -G admin 


You're now added to the admin group and have sudo rights again.
