Take ownership SOLVED I did a re-install

Post by cakehead » Sun Mar 09, 2014 5:24 am

OCZ Vertex 60 Gb = Root, Samsung 500 Gb = Home, I tried to install Mint 16 yesterday and upon setting up new additional users the setup failed and I am now left with my daughters and my wifes accounts as user `1002`. How do I change these accounts back to the original users. I used Mint 15 as there seems to be a bug with the `add user setup` with Mint 16. Thankyou John.

You can add users via command line also

Code: Select all

sudo useradd -m username -s /bin/bash
sudo passwd username

That's the trouble, I don't know how to change ownership by the command line
