To the point:
After a fresh install, I cannot figure out how to assign users to existing folders on the
The details: I upgraded from 10.04 to 12.04. I have 3 partitions:
/home. I formatted
swap, while assigning
/home while not formatting. The old folders and files are clearly there. The command
ls -l /home in a terminal shows:
total 40 drwxr-xr-x 25 andy andy 4096 Jul 4 08:46 andy drwxr-xr-x 21 andy andy 4096 Jun 5 18:52 andyl1 drwxr-xr-x 26 base base 4096 Jul 4 08:52 base drwxr-xr-x 29 base base 4096 Jun 5 19:01 basel1 drwxr-xr-x 27 denise denise 4096 Jul 4 08:45 denise drwxr-xr-x 18 denise denise 4096 Jun 5 18:56 denisel1 drwx------ 2 root root 16384 Feb 16 2012 lost+found
The users andyl1, denisel1 and basel1 are all from the old install (10.04). I would greatly appreciate any advice on how to assign the old folders. I'm not sure if the best/cleanest way is to assign the old folders to the new users, or delete the new users and try to mimic the older naming convention.
Additionally, I can follow general directions when given GUI guidance, how ever, I would appreciate very detailed instructions if I need to drop to a terminal.
