- How do I add myself back as a sudo user? 3 answers
So I bought a used laptop and set up the latest version of Ubuntu on it. I initially set it up with a user profile and password for myself, but decided to give the computer away to a friend who needed it. I created her profile without a password, and then deleted my profile. She lives far away and has told me she has no admin rights, and cannot install a plug-in that she needs. We both don't know a lot about computers or Ubuntu. What instructions can I give her so that she can gain admin rights and be allowed to install software?
