    i found out by myself

    step1: remove sudo

    apt-get autoremove sudo
    apt-get autoclean sudo
    apt-get autoclean
    reboot

    step2: install sudo
    apt-get install sudo
    apt-get autoclean sudo
    apt-get autoclean
    reboot


    Add your username to the sudo group
    - Type in the following command...
    adduser yourusernamehere sudo
    - then press [enter]

    Now add your name to /etc/sudoers file
    - Type in the following command...
    nano /etc/sudoers
    - then press [enter]
    - Scroll down and look for the line "%sudo ALL=(ALL:ALL) ALL"
    - Below that line type in the following...
    yourusernamehere ALL=(ALL:ALL) ALL
    - Press "Ctrl+x" then press "y" and then press [enter] to exit and save the file

    Now we exit out of the Terminal completely
    - Type in the following command...
    exit
    - then press [enter]
    - Type exit again...
    exit
    - then press [enter]
    - That should have closed the Terminal application

    Now let's open a new Terminal and test to see if sudo is working for your user name
    - Test sudo by typing the following command...
    sudo ls
    - then press [enter]
    - type in your password and press [enter]

    - If the output looks like the following...
    yourusernamehere is not in the sudoers file. This incident will be reported.
    - then you might have to start from the beginning of these instructions and try again.

    - If the output looks like this...
    Desktop Documents Downloads Music Pictures Public Templates Videos
    - Your username now has sudo rights, congratulations!
