[SOVLED] Was Not Asked For su- password for installation

Postby JeSuisFlaneur » 2020-05-31 20:42

This is my 2nd time installing Debian 10. I did a clean install, after repartitioning the drive. On install from a LiveUSB, at no time was I asked for a root password. I was asked for a user pw, which I input on power up or reboot and update/upgrade via apt-get, etc.

I tried to run HP Plug-in to get their linux scanner software. It won't install as I cannot input the password.

Anybody know what to do?

Try
Code: Select all
sudo passwd root


Then create a root password.
