Can not set password on Raspberry Pi OS Lite

Post by crallian » Thu 03 Dec 2020, 01:20

Reinstalled my Raspberry pi4 system, using the latest Raspberry Pi OS Lite 32 bit (2020-08-20).

When I try to set passwords in SPC Web Gateway i get an error:
myuser@raspberrypi:~ $ sudo /opt/spc-web-gateway/spc-web-gateway –A
User root is not allowed to run this application!

myuser UID=1001 is member of sudo group (but not root).
Starting and stopping the SPC Gateway seem to work, and I can reach the Testpanel.

Struggle to find a way around this, and can not remember seeing this before.
Have I done something strange?
Or can it be something with the new OS?

Best regards
Christer

Aaaah, seems like something happened with the last "-" sign in front of the "A" when copy-pasting from the pdf.

deleted the "-" and rewrote it manually, and voala, it works!! =))
sudo /opt/spc-web-gateway/spc-web-gateway –A

Case closed.

Great you found the issue yourself. It's a known problem if you cut and paste directly from the old pdf manual. Should be fixed in the newest version of the manual found in www.lundix.se/smarta-losningar
