I want sudo rights for Cubbli
You can have them, but first consider that you don't need sudo rights for nodejs, npm, python, ruby, R, compiling programs and libraries or Java installation. If you Google and find web pages which tell you otherwise, they are likely wrong. If something useful is missing from Cubbli please contact Helpdesk or the Telegram channel and it is likely to get installed by default. If you are a CS department student you are free to replace the Cubbli Linux installation with your own. However all the University system and software integration (and future updates) will be missing then.

Using a keyring (also how to change the login password)
