Users and Groups tool no longer in menu?


I realize I can add a new user in a terminal, but it's a little easier to use the GUI tool. However, I just realized this tool has disappeared from my main menu???

How do I get this back???

You need to tell us which distribution, which version and which desktop environment (gnome or kde).

Have you right clicked on the Menus and clicked Edit Menus to see if it has been simply unticked?

Yes I've tried that, and it doesn't even show up in that list. I'd like to add it, but I don't even know the command to bring up the GUI for the users & groups tool.

gnome-system-tools is the package but which one is specific to user management I don't know. I think it's system-config-users, but that may be fedora specific.

That was what I needed... once I re-installed gnome-system-tools the Users & Groups option was added back to the menu. I have no idea how it got removed in the first place!

Thanks!!
