Kuser usually is not installed by default, so it has to be installed manually. KUser is part of the kdeadmin-package.
Once installed you can find it under K-Menu -> System -> KUser, or start it with KRunner (Alt+F2) typing 'kuser'.
After starting KUser a window opens containing two tabs: Users and Groups.
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.
- Modify the userproperties like User-ID, Name, Adressinformations or set/change a password for example. You can also deactivate a account.
- Change password settings, like the time after that a password have to be changed, or set a time a account will expire on.
- Add or remove groups the user belongs to.
Double clicking a group opens a dialog, where you can change the name of the group and add/remove users to/from a group.
|Be careful deleting anything, as it can harm your system seriously!|
Click Settings -> Configure KUser and you can set up defaults for creating a new user:
- 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.
- set default paths for password, group file, password shadow file and group shadow file.
- set preferences for users in a local network
||In most cases you won't have to change the default settings, as they are sufficient for most users.
