I want to change my username and followed the instructions from How do I change my username? by creating a temp user with admin privileges. While logged in as temp, I did :
sudo usermod -l newname oldname sudo usermod -d /home/newname -m newname
Now I cannot log in under
/home only lists
Reading through other sites now, it seems I should have used
usermod -d /home/newname -m oldname
Based on this, I think I may have deleted the contents of my previous home folder??
I'm sure I'm not the first person to do some stupid while changing username, but any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you!
