KUser is part of the kdeadmin-package. Once installed you can find it under Kickoff -> Applications -> System -> KUser (Kickoff -> System -> KUser if you use the classic menu style) , or start it with KRunner (Alt+F2) typing kuser. Using KUser After starting KUser a window opens containing two tabs: Users and Groups. Users Double-clicking a user opens a dialog with several tabs. The amount of tabs is variable, depending on the type of the user storage system and whether quotas are being used. User Info Modify the user-properties like User-ID, Name, Address information or set/change a password for example. You can also deactivate an account. Password Management Change password settings, like the time after which a password has to be changed, or set a time at which an account will expire. Groups Add or remove groups the user belongs to. Groups Double clicking a group opens a dialog, where you can change the name of the group and add/remove users to/from a group. Warning Be careful deleting anything, as it can harm your system seriously! Configure KUser Click Settings -> Configure KUser and you can set up defaults for creating a new user: General set the shell, the home path or the UID. choose if a home folder will be created and if a skeleton (standard configuration files) will be copied to the home folder. set a private group, which creates a own personal group when a user is added and removes it, when the user is removed. set a standard password policy. Files set default paths for password, group file, password shadow file and group shadow file. LDAP set preferences for users in a local network Tip In most cases you won't have to change the default settings, as they are sufficient for most users.
