    Default Nano help

    Trying to access config.txt to edit on RPi 2 using Nano 5.5 via ssh for first time. I can't bring up lines or execute commands as the ~# is not there after initial programme login. Any ideas?

    I think root access is default but will check.

    Please note that there is a difference between root and admin.

    If I have understood your question correctly, you'd like to execute a command you need root permissions for, am I right?
    Alternatively to being a root user, you can use the 'sudo' command.
    Hope that helps.

    With this flavour root is default, but thanks.
