View Full Version : [ubuntu] curses users-admin?

April 24th, 2009, 10:27 PM
I am setting up samba on a server, and I have to make some new users.
I got used to users-admin (gui way). I find it handy to see all of the user information at once instead of cat /etc/passwd

On this server though I don't know if I want to install all of the gnome dependencies required for gnome-system-tools:

sudo apt-get install gnome-system-tools

The following extra packages will be installed:

I was wondering if there is a ncurses based tool for user management?
