This is just a thought ... Based on the output you posted from your Terminal, I'm wondering if maybe you mistyped your username's password (remember that the Terminal / Konsole is very picky about spelling, case-sensitivity and spacing) or mistakenly tried to enter the root (/) account's password. When you use sudo
, the system prompts you to enter your username's password
, not the password of the root (/) account. It's easy to make a typo (since the Terminal doesn't echo back your password), so you might try again -- slowly and carefully.
I think what Andreas meant when he said that
Documents $ sudo pisi it
is wrong, is that sudo
would not work from within your /Documents
directory -- which is where you were when you issued the command. I suppose that it is better to be in your /home directory when you type a sudo
command. However, as a test I just installed the Bluefish editor using sudo
from within my Documents
directory, and it worked fine.
Regarding what trixon wrote, it made me curious enough to look at the sudoers file
(which is located in /etc/sudoers
). I opened it as a root user with Emacs and will post some of the file's contents below. I don't completely understand it, but it appears to me that perhaps all users on the system are included [??]. Hopefully someone can clarify this for us; I don't remember having to do anything special to include myself in the sudoers
file when I first installed Pardus ...
# sudoers file.
# This file MUST be edited with the 'visudo' command as root.
# See the sudoers man page for the details on how to write a sudoers file.
[ . . . text omitted . . .]
# User privilege specification
root ALL=(ALL) ALL
# Uncomment to allow people in group wheel to run all commands
%wheel ALL=(ALL) ALL
# Same thing without a password
#%wheel ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: ALL
Hope this helps. And by the way, is something weird going on with the Forum display today? The text display bleeds about 3 miles
into the right-hand margin of the window. It's annoying!
Did I do something wrong, or is it like this for everyone? (Plus it's not having this problem with displaying other websites).
