Users and Fast User Switcher

 

 

In this screencast we look at creating multiple user accounts with different access rights and use the new fast user switcher to switch between users.

  • Logging in
  • Setting a face (avatar/icon)
  • Removing and adding the fast user switcher applet
  • Creating and modifying users
  • Switching between users
  • Leaving messages for other users in their screensaver

NOTE: I used Ubuntu 7.10 (Gutsy) for this screencast. Gutsy is currently not yet released so I would not recommend running it yet on production systems.
