How to get the initial help on sudo to reappear in Ubuntu

By admin | September 4, 2008

If you’ve used a new, fresh Ubuntu install, you’ll notice that the first time you open the terminal, you would get the following message before your first sudo (or su):
 To run a command as administrator (user "root"), use "sudo ". See "man sudo_root" for details. 

However, after your first sudo or su, this message disappears when you open the terminal. If you (for somewhat reason) need to reactivate this message, simply delete ~/.sudo_as_admin_successful with the following command: rm ~/.sudo_as_admin_successful.
