View Full Version : Naming Scheme

June 2nd, 2010, 04:39 PM
When I installed ubuntu - i supplied my name: Tom, username: gypsy, and a hostname: boser-wolf.

At the login screen my name: Tom, appears as an alias for the username to login as. I would like to have my username displayed rather than my name - and cannot find a solution. Thanks for any and all assistance.

Have you tried user management? I can't recall the exact icon name, but I'm sure under System there is some sort of user management GUI.

Googling around a bit I found it was called this

System > Administration > Users and Groups

Should be able to change the real name in there and that would only display the user-name.
