Correcting user name [SOLVED]

(1/1)

Alan_uk:
Just installed Linux Lite and now noticed I spelled my name wrong when defining the user!! Is there an easy way to correct this? I've been through all the Settings and User Manager options but couldn't see anywhere to do this.

Note: I'm referring to user's full name, not the log-on ID

Jerry:
Open a terminal:


--- Code: ---sudo usermod -c "Desired Name" yourloginnamehere
--- End code ---

Alan_uk:
Many thanks Valtam for a quick response.

For other newbies the desired name needs to be in quotes if it has a space. e.g.

sudo usermod -c "John Smith"  john

Jerry:
Original post corrected.
