multiple simultaneous logins
 
Command line navigation?
If user "A" logs in, how can a 2nd, 3rd and 4th user login to the same machine. I mean, once "A" is logged in, how can I get a clean new user login screen back up.

Then, once multiple users are logged in, how can I move between users without logging in and out each time?

Gnome:
Is it possible to do this in Gnome too? How do I move between users in Gnome without logging in and out each time?

Thanks

Do you know about the virtual consoles?
Pressing ALT + F1 -> F6 gives you 6 users logged-in at the same time, without interfeering. Useful, ha? :cool:

You can do that in Gnome, too. Search for 'New login' or 'new session' or smth like that. I don't use Gnome, so I can't help you. Keep looking!

You can also use the su command to switch between user accounts from within a terminal.

Or if you use the X window system, you could just open multiple consoles / virtual terminals and just
Code:

su
yourself to somebody else.

You can't do that in Window$, do you?! :D

I like your signature. Windows doesn't give much to go on with an error either. Just a bunch of stuff no one knows what they mean. :-):confused:

You can also use the application "screen", which gives you multiple login terminals

Dafinately agree with that! (When will M$ see the light and integrate [and I mean integrate] POSIX in their shitty 'proprietary os'?!)
