It is also assumed you have not encrypted your home directory. Under those assumptions, here is a simple example: # usermod -l <newname> -d /home/<newname> -m <oldname> # groupmod -n <newgroup> <oldgroup> Regards, Dusan Baljevic (amateur radio VK2COT) DD Newbie 10 points 8 February 2019 1:42 AM David DeGuzman Got it. Thanks.
