switch/manage users

Post by Winston655 »

My goal is pretty simple. I just set up my first Dietpi or Raaspberry pi zero. I log in is as root. I want to setup a new account so I don't have to use root. How can I set up a new user account and then switch user? I managed to use 'adduser' and enter data, but cannot find how I change user.
I'm a green user, this my first dietpi setup. Thanks to all

Hi,

there is nothing special on DietPi in relation to user management. It's same as on all other Linux based systems. I will link a basic user guide and another how to switch user.

Pls let us know if a solution is working. This could help others if they hit by similar situation. Your DietPi Team
