[Solved] Additional user names?

Post#1 by Jaffcat » 25 Aug 2013, 14:59

Hi Guys,

been using Porteus for a week or so know and have the system running great from USB, nice and fast.

One thing I can't seem to find an answer to is, How do I add additional user names other than Guest & Root?

Can it be done?

I have the login screen appear at boot now, and would like to have root for use just as root, guest for the wife to use so nothing gets changed and then I would like an additional name for me, that I can customize a little......

Any suggestions??

Richard

hi Jeffcat,

please make sure that you are saving changes then open terminal and run 'adduser' command as root.
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.
