I added a new user using terminal. I ran 'sudo adduser marilyn', and enter a password and other needed info. I then ran 'sudo usermod -aG sudo marilyn' to add her to the sudoers file. I loggged out and logged in on the new user to set up conf settings. The whole process seemed to go well, untill I logged back into my account. Any GUI app that requires a password no longer works. They either shut down after I enter my password, or say I'm not authorized to run said app. This applies to all apps, discover, gparted, timeshift, etc. I can run whatever I want from command line with sudo,but the GUI apps won't accept my password. Is this an easy fix or will I have to restore my last backup from terminal. Thanks in advance for any help.
