I'm not sure what that means. As your are the user having installed karmic you 
can "sudo" or "kdesudo"; and possibly the other accounts you installed are 
not part of the "sudoer" group. 
This shouldn't make any difference because your are not running as root (which 
is difficult in KUbuntu unless there philosophy has changed...I'm on "Hardy" 
and "Jaunty"). Unless you "sudo" your are just a normal user and your problem 
must have another cause.

It appears you are not the only one having wireless problems in "karmic"
It is interresting to note that only the first account experiences this 
problem, and I would be curious to know if if works with an ethernet cable 
plugged in.
Now don't expect much info on this topic because I never had that problem and 
my machine is cabled to the router. I will follow this thread in the hope I 
can learn more when you report back how you solved it or when someone else 
gives you a more educated advice.
As a start I googled for "wireless karmic" and found this thread:
Can that help?
Unless you have other input from this list, try googling some more.
