Can't delete user!
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 29, 2009
EDIT: I found my answer in this thread. So, howcome the GUI Users and Groups button to delete a user doesn't work?
Hmm well this is odd!
I created a new user called "newuser" so I could customize my guest session by setting up newuser's account how I wanted it, then copying over his home directory to /etc/skel.
This works great, my guest account now saves my settings... but, I want to delete newuser now as i'm finished with him... but he refuses to go!!
I go to users and groups and unlock, then delete, but when I close the window and re-open it, he's back again!
I even completely removed his home directory, but he still keeps appearing... wtf!
vsftpd won't delete user
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 30, 2013
I've installed vsftpd on my machine to ease up the process of transfering files.
I have added a new user called Snitz and gave it permission to /home/Snitz/
All is good for now.
But I originally intended to gain access to /home/mycode/
because that's where my site's files are stored.
So I tried added a new user named "mycode" but it kept saying user already exists and I do not know what the password is.
So I tried deleting the user:
sudo userdel mycode
but it kept saying user is currently logged in.
I tried disconnecting:
but I got logged out of my root username.

Can't Delete User in Xubuntu 12.10
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 25, 2012
Hey, I'm new to the forums, and have a problem with Xubuntu 12.10. I accidentally messed up the top panel and decided to create a new user. Now every time I go to my settings to delete that account, it asks me for the root password. It never made me set up a root password in the Xubuntu 12.10 setup! Can someone help me with this problem?

Need to recover delete user home directory
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 7, 2011
Hello I run a server where multiple people can access it via SSH and have access to the same folder. Someone recently decided to stop using my server so I deleted their login account inside the User and Group GUI inside gnome. I accidentally selected delete files owned by this user. I didn't think much of it because the user didn't actually own any of the files since it was shared among all of them. Anyway, ALL the files in that shared home directory vanished, including the home directory. How can I recover this? It didn't move all the files to the root trash or my local user's trash folder. Are the permanently deleted?
