I'm about to do a fresh install of 10.10 Desktop on my work PC.
I previously had 10.04 and I had the
/home of our main server mounted to
/mnt/home. I remember back then I had to change my local user id to match that used on the id of my user on the remote server, so I will have the correct permissions to all my files.
My question is whether I can set this id during the setup or must I do it post installation (effectively changing the automatically assigned id).
Also, is that the best practice to work on a mounted location or is there anything more elegant?
