View Full Version : [ubuntu] Live ISO, but with sudo password

April 19th, 2011, 09:13 PM
Hi all

I'm using a customised (via the excellent UCK) live image of 10.10 due to hardware restriction ('thin client' type machine with a 1GB SSD). However I'd like to have a password for superuser access, i.e. a password prompt when running anything via sudo.

I tried a couple of things but with no joy so far... is this possible?

Many thanks!

in my opinion just install ubuntu on your sdd or usb. you will use a lot more diskspace but all things will do faster (ps sorry for beeing drunk)

Hi, thanks for the reply.

In this case I cannot install ubuntu directly on the SSD as it is too small, and I'd rather avoid using USB drives where possible as I have many of these machines to upgrade to Ubuntu (from SuSe).

Many thanks

Go to users and groups and create a new user with password.
Then to login and set up login for that user.
User Ubuntu should disappear after that, If I recall correctly.
