I've been trying to add a new user for a while, but all it comes back with is this;
running '/usr/sbin/adduser' failed: Child process exited with code 1

I googled for the specific error and user adding error fixes in general but I can't seem to work it out just yet.
Could anybody please explain to me how to fix this, or work around it? I'm using Zorin OS. :-)

Thank you for reading!

I am unfamiliar with Zorin but it is based on Ubuntu which disables root by default. You have to use the sudo command but you need to login as the user you created during the install if you not already doing that instead of the guest session. See link below

sudo adduser
