Hello
I'm a complete beginner to linux and chose porteus as my first distro. I was trying to install python idle and used this command:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install idle
When I used this command, it asked me to enter my password. I did, and then it replied:
Username is not in the sudoers list.

Could someone here help me?
Thanks in advance
