Stuck with Exec and sudo


Hello, i'm running node-red on an orange-pi, it is running armbian with the diet-pi scripts ontop.

I've slowly built up flows that i am happy with, and i started trying to use some exec nodes.

For some nodes it is ok, but for anything using sudo, i get the message We trust you have received the usual lecture from the local System↵Administrator. It usually boils down to these three things:↵↵ #1) Respect the privacy of others.↵ #2) Think before you type.↵ #3) With great power comes great responsibility.↵↵sudo: no tty present and no askpass program specified↵"

I've tried to add the user nodered to visudo, but it doesn't seem to have helped.

Please can someone point me gently in the right direction?


You need the following - I have it in /etc/sudoers.d/010_pi-nopasswd:


You will need to change pi to whatever your device is using as a user. You should test it from the command line first.

Obviously it is more secure to put specific commands in there rather than using ALL.


Thanks so much for the pointer, that's done it. perfect, thanks!!!!!
