Re: [SUSPECTED SPAM] Re: [nvda] About Linux
Any web search on Linux and any specific CLI commands will give you results with sudo in front of them.
And if one posts to a Linux list with a problem with a command and one submits the command they did without the sudo, someone will tell them to use sudo.

I'm sorry, this really shouldn't be here, but typing sudo before every command is *not* necessary. As I said before, the only time the sudo command is needed is when you're running a system command. General programs, (which most are), does not require a sudo command. Sudo is only used when you're configuring the system, or doing something that requires root access, which is generally only when you're changing configuration files, or installing programs to the /usr/bin or /usr/sbin directories. There are very few reasons to use sudo, and if you're using it before every command, then you're using it incorrectly.
