(Sorry for the inconvenience)

This screen is used to create the user account that you will use to login to your system.

Figure 4.5a: User Creation Screen


WARNING Do not login to the system using the root user account. The system has been designed to prompt your user account for the administrative password when it is required.

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 share your computer with other users, you will be able to create additional user accounts once you are logged in using Control PanelUser Manager.

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 PEFS. 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.
