Ubuntu: What is the command to switch to normal user? [duplicate]


This question already has an answer here:

I am trying to "su/sudo" command to switch to a regular user. It asks me password and I enter admin password then it says su: Authentication failure. How can I switch to regular user, what is the problem?

walter@walter-VirtualBox:~/testdir$ su  Password:   su: Authentication failure  walter@walter-VirtualBox:~/testdir$  


To enter type sudo su.

To exit from super user mode type exit.


You can switch to a different regular user by using the command su.

Example: su John Then put in the password for John and you'll be switched to the user 'John' in the terminal.
