Switch user


I am still learning a lot about this OS. I have recently switched to SuSE 9.1 professional and noticed a icon on the kmenu under actions. This button is to switch user. I don't have this on my daughters 9.0 menu. Would someone teach me how to invoke the switch user function?

hi there,

no experience with suse but what you mean, i think, can be
Code:
su
probably, under kde, that i have also no experience, exist something like
Code:
ksu
you can create menu entries with that...

Code:
su $USER_NAME
try man su

regards

Thank's Slackie. I have used that a bazillion times from the command line prompt, but it never dawned on me that it would work from the graphocal interface. I just tried it and it worked fine. I guess sometimes you can't see the forest for the trees.
