This question already has an answer here:
- How do I add myself back as a sudo user? 4 answers
I removed admin rights for the original admin account, in order to set up a new account with clear history. (Not 100% that was needed, I am still getting to grips with linux / Ubuntu 12.04 and I read somewhere that its not wise to use original account day to day, which I initially did.)
However, I didn't activate the password for the new account before applying changes.
Here's what I did:
- set up new account (no password)
- Added admin Rights
- Removed admin right from original
- No admin access
It now seems as though I have no sudo /admin access. Since I need the 'unset' password of the inactive account, which is the only one with admin rights.
