I'm running #! waldorf off a live usb, however when I boot up for the first time it doesn't bring up the welcome screen. When I write cb-welcome in the terminal it tells me I need sudo access for that command however I don't know the sudo password.

Furthermore, whenever I shut down the system, everything I did was lost, including Libreoffice and Chromium which I downloaded through the shortcut links.

Basically, I want to know how to set up user accounts and how to access  sudo in the terminal. I'm new to all this and hope someone can help me, as apart from that I think #! has a really sleek UI.

Thanks in advance :D

Re: user accounts

hello and welcome to bunsenlabs forums (only joking - although crunchbang is superseded by bunsenlabs, these are still the crunchbang forums)!

everything you describe is normal!

  • the welcome script only pops up when you actually install crunchbang

  • the sudo password for the live session is either no password at all or sth simple like "root" or "crunchbang" or...

  • the live usb has no persistence, so yes, everything is lost when you shut down

why don't you install crunchbang to your hard drive?
or, even better, why don't you install bunsenlabs to your hard drive (crunchbang is dead)?

@leNoah:  You could also search the forums here or via your preferred search engine on how you can make a CrunchBang or BunsenLabs Live USB drive with persistence; i.e. allows you to save your changes.
