nsswitch configuration file access.

Briefly describe your issue below:


my question is likely very simple,so please excuse my lack of knowledge in this department…
I’ve scoured the forum,and web,searching for the appropriate command line to access the nsswitch configuration file,to no avail.

most responses look like this.

$sudo gedit /etc/nsswitch.conf
sudo: gedit: command not found

$/etc/nsswitch.conf File
bash: /etc/nsswitch.conf: Permission denied

so,apparently it’s accessible,i just dont know how to open it…
any help is greatly appreciated,thanks in advance…

Hey @nova :slight_smile:

You can use the nano editor. It is a very simple editor available in terminal/shell.

sudo nano /etc/nsswitch.conf
