I am attempting to set up my username/password in Ubuntu
Originally I am not sure what I had done, but when I attempted setting up my username and password I thought my input was no longer working when I got to the password section (not knowing it doesn’t show password input), but now when I open up Ubuntu I am on root.
I looked online to find the command adduser so I could create my login credentials, but now I realize that after the initial user setup any additional users it seems added don’t initially have administrative privileges.
Does anyone have any advice on how to proceed? Should I try reinstalling and to make a new initial user, or can I enter some command to give my user admin?
Thanks, - Zach
