• Setup Root Account


    Hello Everyone
    Id like to setup the root account seperate to user account.

    Antergos is like Ubuntu and Windows in that the first user has admin rights. But I prefer the old fasioned way of things where the root account is seperate to the users. Is this possible in Antergos ?
    Thanks
    Phillip

    1. Give root a password if you didn’t in the installation process:
    sudo su
    passwd
    exit
    
    1. If you want, you can remove the first user from the sudoers list by simply removing the following file:
    sudo su
    rm /etc/sudoers.d/10-installer
    exit
    

    Please note that you won’t be able tu use sudo with your user.

    Cheers!
