Installing Arch linux Quick Q


Warning: Do not edit /etc/sudoers directly with an editor; Errors in syntax can cause annoyances (like rendering the root account unusable). You must use the visudo command to edit /etc/sudoers.

In the previous section we added your user to the "wheel" group. To give users in the wheel group full root privileges when they precede a command with "sudo", uncomment the following line:

%wheel ALL=(ALL) ALL

so i signed in as root and typed in visudo now i alreayd made the changes but how do i exit and save super+x doesnt seem to do it for me since im not using nano and not supposed to cause it causes errors
