Multipass - Commandline?
in flag

I've tried using multipass. When I click on multipass in the startmenu it does not show anything dealing with a shell. It has a run as administrator option but this does nothing. I had an ubuntu CLI option in the start menu and when I tried to update it asked me for a password. I tried my passwords and they were all incorrect.

Can any one provide some assistance as to what I am doing wrong?

Details of multipass instance

Is the instance persistent, or does it (and all its data & history) cease to exist when you're done with it?

If remote and persistent, does it make y ...
