If I don’t a new account after I install Garuda, does that mean my account is a root account?
The primary user off the back of a fresh installation is a member of the
wheel group and can run commands as root using
root is a separate user. Depending on the choices you made in the installer,
root may have the same password as the primary user.
So when I run a program it won’t have root access right?
I don’t mean by using sudo in a terminal, I mean like when I run a program on the desktop or something
A program run as your regular user will not have root access. If you launch a program that needs root access, for example Btrfs Assistant or Garuda Boot Options, it should explicitly ask you to authorize elevating to root for that process.
