Re: Change new user privileges

You just have john in the sudo group. If you only want to interact with the Raspbian OS, that's probably fine. If you want to interact with hardware, you'll need to be in other groups as well. If you want john to be able to do everything pi can do, join all the same groups. The command, groups pi j...

Re: Change new user privileges

You should add the new user to all the same groups as the pi user (except the pi group). To compare groups: groups pi john Then add your user john to the same groups (except the pi group). sudo usermod -G list,of,comma,delimited,groups john Also, the sudo/password privileges stuff is now stored for...

Change new user privileges

I am following some tutorials but it is not clear to me how to give this new user all the privileges that the PI has, the idea is to remove the PI privileges and leave only mine (john) by default. [email protected]:~ $ su john Password: [email protected]:/home/pi $ sudo visudo We trust you have received...

Re: How to change language

I have it in portuguese and I want it in english but would by good to keep the time...

Re: Cannot format write protected card problem

by the way, if you install the card the way you should do with 64GB and large cards, that is by NOT using NOOBS, but by writing a Raspbian image to the card using the etcher image writer, then there is no reason to format the card first. Sure, is not for NOOBS is for Raspbian but in all the guides ...

Re: Cannot format write protected card problem

Get your money back! If the card isn't locked with a write protect slide, then the card has locked up itself to protect it content because it has detected major problems while writing to is storage. it could be a fake. I bought it in a really big and reputable company here in my country and I doubt...
