Thread: unable to create new user acc.

  1. #1

    Default unable to create new user acc.

    i m not able to create new user account to my new install of 11.2 don't know whether it occured due to update problem or some installation failure.
    when creation a new profile through yast it gives a warning sub-domain not started and quits
    however a new user get added through cli but with no profile of its own. that user cant log into gui enviroment and when he/she logs through cli it automatically tranfers it profile to "/"(i.e root)
    i m using kde4.3

    Did you use this approach: Open Yast --> Security and Users --> User and Group Management --> Users Tab --> Add
    Leap 42.3 & 15.1(Beta) &KDE

    Add Profile wizard is an App Armor configurator, it's not for adding Linux users. The thing to use for adding Linux users is the User and Group Management configurator.

    Better do a user inventory reconciliation. If possible, log on as a normal user but if not possible log on as root. Do these things and report back.
    1. Open Yast --> Security and Users -- User and Group Management. Under the "Users" Tab, who are the listed users?
    2. List the home directories with this command and report the results here:
      Code:
      ls -l /home
    3. Give the name/s of users where the KDE GUI logon works
    4. Give the name/s of users where the KDE login fails

    it sounds a lot like you have a bad install, maybe acorrupted install
    disk...

    1. did you get your install image from
    http://software.opensuse.org/112/en ? (then where?)
    2. did you check the md5sum of the downloaded iso?
    3. burn the disk as slow as you can?
    4. use good media?
    5. do this http://tinyurl.com/yajm2aq before install attempt?

    if you answered "no" (or "don't know") to any of those then see the
    following cites, and if we can help further, please ask because we
    want you to be successful:
    http://en.opensuse.org/Download_Help
    http://tinyurl.com/yhf65pv
    http://tinyurl.com/ycly3eg

    and, to create a new user from the command line use the command

    Code:
    adduser
    it is fully documented in the manual, see:

    Code:
    man adduser
    and, how-tos are abundant, see:
