ZED BOX - Can't log in to new user


I’m using a ZED Box Orin NX. I created a new user, set a password and gave the administrator privileges to it using the next chain of commands:

sudo useradd -m <username>
sudo passwd <username>
sudo usermod -aG sudo <username>

Then I logged out from default “user” and tried to access the new user, but the screen will go black for a couple of seconds and return to the log in screen. I searched for similar problems on forums but found no answer.

Hi @NVG97

the Orin Nano ZED Box does not exist.
Can you send a picture of the device to identify it?

Hi @Myzhar !
Sorry for the confussion, I meant the Orin NX box.

The problem solved itself by deleting the user and creating it again.
