Root Password - Linux Mint "Debian" - 201204 MATE/Cinnamon

Postby digitalbigsky on Thu May 17, 2012 2:14 am

- Linux Mint "Debian" - 201204 MATE/Cinnamon 64-bit root passwd is not set by:
mint@mint ~ $ sudo passwd root

We trust you have received the usual lecture from the local System
Administrator. It usually boils down to these three things:

#1) Respect the privacy of others.
#2) Think before you type.
#3) With great power comes great responsibility.

[sudo] password for mint:
Sorry, try again.

- Menu - System - Users and Groups and set a password for user mint. Did work but:
mint@mint ~ $ sudo passwd root
[sudo] password for mint:
mint is not in the sudoers file. This incident will be reported.

- Run from Yummi pendrive.

- sudo passwd root worked on Ubuntu Studio on same pendrive

Where do I log bugs?

Love Cinnamon.

Thank you!

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.
