Question Is there a GUI app to manage (add and remove) users for Bodhi?


I know you can do this in the terminal but I'm looking for something with a nice GUI to make this task easier for an end user. Thanks!

Hello

If you mean the native E/Moksha GUI then no. If you are an GUI guy and too scared of command line, install gnome-system-tools and run Menu/Apps/Preferences/Users and Groups.

It's not for me. I refurbish old computers as as charity project and give the laptops to underprivileged students, under a local program that supports high school seniors who in most cases will be the first people in their family ever to attend college. Most of them will be new to Linux and I am looking to make the adjustment easy for them.

underprivileged only means lack of monies not lack of brains so if they are "smart enough" to get into college.... whatever you do, don't challenge their minds.

"It's not for me. ", that says it all.

rebbi - i am on your side trying to help people out like that. that is great work! did waiters idea work? just curious.

also if someone has a complete set of terminal commands you can also include those in a cheat sheet. I have a ph.d. but re: terminal commands - i am so lost and i just don't get it. left brain right and not a no brain. i have tried to read books on terminal commands and bash stuff and by page 3-4 i am scratching my head and saying....

so not all people get it or at times may even need it. my daughter knows more stuff re: coding than i could ever do - and i am glad for her but not worth much to me and my lack of that kind of knowledge.

so like a said a printed out cheat sheet may help. 1-2 pages also adding the sudo apt-get update and sudo apt-get dist-upgrade.

also if i am not mistaken. initial person has root or admin privileges and others do not. Again - there is a terminal set of commands that i heard about that can make another person admin right too. (if i am wrong - i apologize in advance.) Hang in there. people are here to help.
