Running 8.04. After adding another user I need to add her to the
/etc/sudoers file. The Ubuntu forum,
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Sudoers talks about vi being the
default editor for visudo in 8.04. Does this provide the same safeguards
as visudo did?
If I read the docs right the entry to allow the new user to install
software would be "username ALL=(username) /usr/bin, /usr/sbin". Could
someone please confirm this or correct me? Assuming it's correct, is
that the only entry required? The docs I saw weren't that clear (or was
it me who was dense?).
