KDE package Konfusion
I've never worked with KDE before, so decided to try it out. In Gnome, Mate, Xfce, or LXDE, I used synaptic to select new applications and update my system. In KDE, I feel like a newb idiot, how do you find apps and update? I tried sudo apt-get update, and sudo apt-get install synaptic, but I was told I wasn't in the sudoers file. Can one of you KDE users Klear up my Konfusion? Thanks.
Forgot to mention I have installed Aptosid and Bridge linux in VM to try out.

After you typed "sudo apt-get install synaptic" it should have asked you for your password. Did it not? I use KDE all the time and have NEVER heard of this happening. Can you post the output of this "sudo apt-get install synaptic"? (without quotes)

It looks like you have create a new User and you are logged in KDE session as that User only. Either add new User in sudoers file to give it root privileges or login as a User that you created during installation.
By default, new users don't have root privileges.

I was logged in as the only user created during installation, but it told me I was not in the sudoers file. Since it and root are the only accounts, I dont know how to proceed. Update though, I tried Kubuntu and Konotik, and both worked just fine. A couple of others would install, say to reboot, but just go back to a live seesion, and Aptosid and Debian would tell me I was not in the sudoers file. From playing with Kubuntu and Kanotix, I think I have concluded that while I could live with KDE, it is not my preferred system. Thanks for the help and suggestions.Registered Linux user #526930

I tried both. At any rate, the problem is, while not solved, irrelevant now, since I did get several KDE distro's to install, update, and try out, in my VM. I played around enough to decide that KDE is ok, but not my preferred DE/WM.Registered Linux user #526930
