Give the user the sudo privileges in Ubuntu

Create a new user with a root user with Sudo privileges

Open the terminal window and add a new user with the following command:

#su root
#adduser oracle

Add the new user to the Sudo group. In my case username is oracle:

#usermod -aG sudo oracle

Verify the user has sudo group

#groups oracle

root@Oracle1:/home/sunny/Desktop#groups oracle
oracle : oinstall sudo dba
