Thread: How to change the sudo password?

    Default How to change the sudo password?

    Is there a way to change the sudo password after installation has taken place? I know you can change the user password via that box in 'About me' but that still leaves behind the old sudo password.

    Here it is:

    Code:
    su -c 'passwd root'
    enter the "old" password to execute the command to change the password, then enter the new password twice when asked for, done.
