Cannot create, delete or edit user accounts in Sabayon MATE.

Post by eor2004 » Tue Dec 31, 2013 2:44

I can't create, delete or edit users accounts in MATE version of sabayon, because there's no icon, program or application to do that in "Control Center" or in "Applications", and if it's there, I cannot manage to find it, I have installed all "system-config" packages including "system-config-printers" and "system-config-users" to no avail. Will make bug report but if anyone knows how to fix this please tell me, I will be very happy and thankful.

Sorry, I forgot to say that what I meant is that there's no "GUI" (Graphic User Interface) option to setup user accounts in mate control center.

Hi,

This link may be of use to you

Also perhaps you would like to install:

Code: Select all

 app-admin/superadduser 
and run it as root from the cli.

Thanks!

Altough you can setup users from cli, it could be good if this get fixed, look at it this way, if I were a newbie I would like to have a "GUI" way of configuring user accounts when choosing MATE as my DE, is more appealing to new potential users!
