Hi!

I am using Linux Lite and would like to create new user account without using the Terminal. How can I do this?

Tnx

Hi!

For me, Terminal is a Black box. At this point, I would like to avoid it, if possible...

Tnx

You should learn to use the terminal.
Anyway, your linux distro that use? Desktop environment (gnome, xfce, kde, etc?)?

edit: if you use ubuntu, try here

Hi!

I know that I should learn how to use Terminal- and I will. At this point I am just figuring out how to do stuff without it. When I get more into it I will hit the Terminal

I am using Linux Lite 1.0.2 (Ubunt based)
Xfce Desktop Environment

Tnx
