I installed Bodhi this morning and all went well. Later my synaptic refused my password, out of the blue. I can't figure out why. I am the only user and when I try sudo apt-get update I get this response: Sorry, user s is not allowed to execute '/usr/bin/apt-get update' as root on K. How can I sort this out? (just before I added user s to the audio group.... could this have anything to do with it? .... sudo usermod -G audio s ) (Also after installing an app I was advised to login in again so i just logged out and logged in as s)
Sounds possibly permissions related. I'm not sure I understand adding the user "s" part - it seems like if you ran the command as sudo it should work, assuming it accepted your password. When you log out and back in, which user account is it under? I personally have only run the default user in Bodhi as I am the only person running my system...that user has sudo permissions by default.
Someone else will likely have more information on permissions/passwords/usergroups.
I believe the root account is technically disabled by default in Bodhi Linux, so you should not worry about using the default account and "breaking things". Bodhi uses sudo so you do not have to log in as root (you can break things with sudo, but it's a little more challenging than running as root - that is, there are more safeguards). Someone more technically inclined will likely correct me if I am mistaken or provide more information/detail if needed.
All said, if the install is very new and you have not made many customizations, it may be easiest to re-install Bodhi Linux. Please let us know and thank you
