And that will fix the graphical stuff, too? E.g., the graphical package
management tool will then ask for my password rather than root?

It didn't do that when I just enabled a wheel or whatever group in
/etc/sudoers and added myself to that group. I'm not sure if that's
precisely what you meant by "adding [myself] to /etc/sudoers," though.
