Want to add a new SUDO user

Hi,

I want to add a new SUDO User to my Gardua desktop...

I already created a new users using the "useradd" command, gave it a home-directory, and password..

I also changed it's shell to Fish from Bash (which came as default for some reason)..

Having trouble with the following things:

  • want to add the "newuser" to sudoers file. However, online guides tell to use sudo visudo, but visudo is not opening.. it says "visudo: no editor found (editor path = /usr/bin/vi)"

  • How to enable starship on newuser?

Thanks,

Read here.
I think you should set your EDITOR (default is vi).

For starship I think this could apply

You don't need that.
Just add the new user to wheel group.
