  • Linux Lite: 5.6 64bit

  • MEMORY: 32Gb

  • VIDEO CARD: nVidia GeForce GTX 1650

  • Kernel: 5.x
I can't remember who posted the original question so here's a new thread with a quick and easy fix.

Scenario: You have more than one user account on your Linux Lite machine and now you want to change someone elses account details.

If you are the primary user and have admin (sudo) rights, open a terminal and do:

Code: [Select]
sudo chfn person
where person is the other account login name.
