user account confusion (windows account inherited?)
Hi, I just installed ubuntu 12.04 from windows using wubi. Somehow the windows user account name got into ubuntu and now there is confusion in ubuntu over the user:
the folder in the home directory has the right name: frankels, and the login name in terminal is good (frankels@ubuntu). This is the name I told wubi to use. But the name on the taskbar is the windows account (erik), and this wrong name is also the only administrator account under user accounts (erik). in fact there is no other account. It's almost as if I'm logged in as two users at once!?
Ubuntu seems to have inherited the windows username somehow.
I just want frankels and nothing else... how do I change this?
I hope I don't need a reinstall...
