Setting Up Multiple Users In Ubuntu Linux
Browse this link for more detailed directions for some of the operations that follow.
The way users are going to be set up in this guide is conceived for a computer lab where all computers have a teacher account with administrator privileges. Each computer has also a student who is responsible for its administration, this student is granted privileges too. All other users are created with basic rights only.
Among these basic accounts, a 'Guest User' will be created. This account will log in automatically after a period of time with no activity in the login window.
Of course, if you are going to be the only user in this computer, the initial administrative account created when installing Ubuntu would be more than enough and you can skip creating all the other accounts shown in this guide. Besides, you can enable automatic login for this account, so you don't have to enter a password every time you turn on the computer. In other case, proceed as follows.
Think of some plausible reasons why we have added this 'Guest User' account.
