I haven't messed with the sudoers file in Ubuntu, but in YDL (and Linux
in general?) to give sudoers sudo powers, you have to edit the file
sudoers using a text editor called visudo, if I recall.
Then, you can add the names of the users to the list.
You do it as root, but I don't know if you can do it as sudo.
