    I’m wondering if the Customized Kali (by Zsecurity) allows/prevents us to add new users without having to add a new Group for that user. I’ve tried adding a new user to the root group with the following commands but the login/pw won’t let me in and just reset:

    useradd -g root [mynew_userid]

    Then I create a password for the new user:

    passwd [mynew_userid]

    But when I reboot the system, I type in the new user id and pw and it just goes blank. However, if I add a new group (with new user), I can access the desktop but its like a fresh install of Kali (without the tools and customizations we’ve already added for our original root accounts.

    Any ideas/thoughts? Thanks in advance..

    Hi!
    Yeah, in any linux system there can only be 1 root user, hence what you are trying is not gonna work and you’ll login to a different desktop and system set up. Actually we need to be root user to perform many of the tasks so you’ll need to use it.
