Debian 6 – HowTo enable sudo on your user account on Debian 6 (Squeeze)

Debian logoHello, in this short tutorial I want to show you, how you can run programs with root rights on your freshly generated user account, by adding the sudo command to user accounts.

What is sudo?

sudo – short for “substitute user do” – is a command which allows users to run commands with other user’s rights (e.g. root).

How to enable sudo for my user account on Debian 6?

Note:
You will need the root password for this set of commands.

Step1:

Login to a user account.

Step2:

Open a terminal window and type this into your window:

su root
adduser YOURUSERNAME sudo

Step3:

Now reboot, and on your next session you will be allowed to run every program or command, which doesnt belong to you, or you don’t have the rights for with:

 sudo COMMAND 

I hope this helps some of you, because sudo isn’t automatically added to your user account on a fresh Debian 6 install.

    “because sudo isn’t automatically added to your user account on a fresh Debian 6 install”

    That’s for a reason. sudo has its uses but this kind of use (read: abuse) isn’t one of them.

    When i try it it says “bash: SU: command not found” I am a completly newcomer into this linux world

    Thanks. Especially for Step3 ;-)
    BTW: exit and re-login works also.

    you can just logout and log back in, you dont need to reboot.

    Thanks! Just what I was looking for as ecryptfs doesn’t let me encrypt the home dir of my “regular” sudoer as she is still logged in of course :)

    Do not work on Debian 7… and do you know why?


  • Friday, 19. July 2013 - 7:40 Uhr

    For anyone having trouble after adding the user simply type:

    apt-get install sudo

    Have fun!

    thank you very much

    After
    “adduser YOURUSERNAME sudo”
    you should use
    “su YOURUSERNAME ” else you will continue to use the terminal as root

    If you want to get a lot of donus, XP, coins and other resources in this game, use the Simpsons
    Tapped Out Cheats for it! You can also do that if you pay with your own real money, but it is not worth it to pay
    for just … a game!
    Our Simpsons Tapped Out cheats tool is 100% undetectable, because it connects directly to the
    servers and injects our code to the host, making it look like
    we’re sending game requests (packets) from your valid device amongst gamers
    when actually we’re injecting client mod information in order to trick the system.

    In addition, we spoof the host’s protocol, so that it does not resemble there was an association made
    from an external source. There’s not a slightest chance that
    you can get banned, so you can begin using your Simpsons Tapped Out
    cheats right this moment and start climbing the leaderboards
