Re: Sudo

Because in Debian you're probably not mentioned in /etc/sudoers. If your user account were frank, going to root using su you could do something like:
echo 'frank ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD:ALL' >>/etc/sudoers <enter>.
then type exit to get back to the frank account and type:
sudo -H -i <enter> and see what happens.

When you installed LinuMint I'm going to make a wag here and figure you didn't put a password in for root and because of that LinuMint put your user account in /etc/sudoers as part of its installation routine.
