Exclamation I need help with Ubuntu Sudo

Hi, well I was trying to install Wine through the terminal on Ubuntu andit said something that there was a problem with sudo and that I can't do anything unless the problem is corrected. I can't even open the Synaptic Package Manager! It say something about sudo and a problem that needs to be corrected. This has never happened before so please help me. I would truly appreciate it.

Re: I need help with Ubuntu Sudo

Can you tell us, what is the output of this command from a terminal?
Code:
id
To be able to use sudo, you need to belong to groups adm & admin so if you don't see those two groups from the output, then that would explain it.

You can get far more better suggestions given in simlar topic here - Cannot Install wine in Ubuntu 9.04
