i dont speak for the dev community or have any affiliation with parrotlinux.org (is it just me or did it uaed to be parrotsec?) when i say, “the forums are an important place to come when something is actually wrong with your distro, or youve exhausted all other methods of research and are atill stumped… but your questions (many of which I needed answered at one point or another) are better suited - and answered in exhaustive detail - on google, duckduckgo, et al, and even, yes, in these very forums… It is clear from not just the nature of your questions but also how you answer the points of detail that you are not reading up, investigating past user exp’s and thus learning about your OS and hardwares capabilitues and limitations as you go along - but are simply using this forum as google when your computer doesnt “do the thing”. Im not saying this to mack you feel less than, or be one of those guys/gals/other whos all like, “xyz is a pentester distro… leave it to the pros noob” (Im likely only a year ahead of where youre at right now). Im saying it because A: the devs are busy fixing bugs and ya know, building Parrotos up from the KERNEL! and B: if this is how you handle the first bumps in the road you will honestly find yourseld quickly overwhelmed and under impressed once you realize that 3/4 of the tools are command line only and respond only with “da-fuq?!” when you eagerly point your laptop at something and using your best Gandalf voice - press enter - and say, " BY THE POWER OF GREYSKULL, I COMMAND THEE… TO HACK. THE. THIIIING!!!”
ok. maybe i am being a jerk now. my apologies and heres a freebie: file manager wont work with root account: parrot os is actually a great choice for you cause it has so many protections like that. first off you need to read up on either the useradd or the adduser command (i forget which but read both) make youraelf a user account with a home directory, teach him/her the sudo spell etc. logot out of root, log baxk in as user and go forth in happiness and blindly break everything you.encounter along the way. cause hey… thats how im learnin’!!!
