Thread: What is the correct syntax for Minicom?

  1. #1

    Question What is the correct syntax for Minicom?

    This doesn't work "adduser bperrotta dialout"

    I'm getting this If 'adduser' is not a typo you can use command-not-found to lookup the package that contains it, like this:
    cnf adduser

    Need help because I want tyo use linux to dial into routers instead of Windows

    Hi
    Assuming the user is present on the system it's usermod;
    Code:
    sudo /usr/sbin/usermod -G dialout bperrotta

    Or just vigr and edit the /etc/group file directly. All this assumes of course that the serial devices and lock files are group owned by dialout and have the right group permissions.

    Hi,

    If dialout is a group you want to add a user to, try YaST->'User and
    Group Management'

    Ah, no you want to be careful with that. It will remove the user from all groups not mentioned in the usermod command.
