Yup there is.
You can do it old school gentoo way as super user in terminal:

Gui Way gentoo style:

Ubuntu Style:

You have to see what will work the best , first try it in live cd /dvd mode + logout and login to new user using ubuntu style.
Then if not working test Gui Gentoo style as likely this is the correct way to avoid most issues there could be in the long run.

Have not tried it myself yet.
