Create a User Screen/10.0
This screen is used to create the primary user account that will be used to login to the system.
Figure 4.5a shows the configuration screen used to create the initial user account. This screen requires you to complete the following fields:
- Name: this value will be displayed in the login screen. It can be your full name and can contain capital letters and spaces.
- Username: this is the name you will use when logging in. It can not contain spaces and is case sensitive (e.g. Kris is a different username than kris).
- Password: this is the password you will use when logging in. You must type it twice in order to confirm it.
If you hover over "Encrypt user files", a checkbox will appear. If you check this box, the contents of the user's home directory will be encrypted using. This type of encryption automatically decrypts the files in the user's home directory when they login and automatically encrypts the contents again when the user logs out.
