I'm setting up this ubuntu dual boot. I have two users. One called smallcomputer that is supposed to be an administrator account and then I thought it might be handy to create a user account called bob. My plan is to use bob for everyday surfing and stuff and the adminstrator account for doing advanced stuff like changing system configuration and stuff. Bob doesn't have a password, but smallcomputer has.
I would like the system to boot into bob directly when I start the computer, and not ask which account I should want to log in to. How do I do that? I feel this should be able to be done since he does not have a password.
I also have some problem with when I'm logged in as bob and want to do a sudo command. Sometimes I see tutorials from internet about changing something and they say "write this in the terminal". I can never execute a sudo command logged in as bob. I tried typing my adminstrator password and typing no password at all (just typing return) and the terminal just says it's the wrong password. Those are the only account I know of that are installed on the system. If I'm logged in as administrator I have no problem executing sudo commands. Why can't I do it from the regular user account? Does calling sudo (when logged in as bob) try to log in as administrator account or is it some level beyond that like some root account?
It's ubuntu 12.10. Thanks for any help
