Hi Michael,

Thanks for your solution. I just tried it and it worked. We are going to
have a hackathon event, and we will distribute some devices to the
developers. I have installed the image well. Without your solution, all of
the developers will have to be reflashed to set it up.

I just found that "create-user" is so far not supported on Raspberry Pi2.
At the mean time, I did not find "adduser" command. On Raspberry pi 3,
--force-managed option is not recognized.

I have use the command:

$ sudo snap create-user --sudoer launchpad_email_address

Based on your solution, I have created a blog article at Hopefully, it
will benefit the rest of the developers

Thanks & best regards,
