User Management

Postby teilnehmer on Fri Aug 31, 2012 3:34 am

Hey there,

I just installed Mint 13 XFCE and am very pleased. I notice, though, that as of now there's no graphical user management tool.
I know how to add a user with
Code: Select all
sudo adduser lisa


but for the 10-year-old in my household I want an account without a password prompt. When I add her as above, I can't enter no password. Where can I change her login behavior so she just has to enter her username?
I'd be happy with either a graphical tool I can install or a terminal solution.


Also, I'd like to have a user list at the splash screen, instead of the text-field. I know where this is edited (system > "Anmeldefenster" - my system is German). Where do I find new configuration files that I can add for a greater choice of splash screens?

found this post looking for info about why this has gone missing.

i also will just use a terminal, but i have LM installed for several people who don't use a terminal, previously i could have tried talking them through adding a new user using the GUI on the phone.

(PS is this because the user man GUI was awful.)

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install gnome-system-tools


Then: Menu > System > Users and Groups
Please add a [SOLVED] at the end of your original subject header if your question has been answered and solved.
