It sounds like you have not modified orca to run administrative tasks.  Someone more knowledgeable than I should probably explain about system administration in Gnu/Linux+Ubuntu, but the instructions that might address your problem may be found on the orca wiki (

I hope this helps.  If this doesn't work, or you have trouble with the instructions, please let the list know, and we should be able to provide more assistance.
