I have 2 accounts, when I run the users app, only 1 of them shows up I't's been this way for some time now, the second account called jenkins was a system account. It worked fine for my purposes (local login only) until now. So I edited it to be not system, but it's still not showing up. Both my account and the jenkins account are "sudoers". So I am assuming they are in the admin group.
I guess the question is, what group must an account belong to to show up in the gui app, and more importantly, which group, to allow remote login. I know this is a stupid question, but it's asked out of frustration trying multiple suggestions on this board, then rebooting, and still being stuck with my jenkins account not being "visible" and also not allowing remote connections. Please tell me my question is stupid, but also tell me why exactly it is stupid, so I leanr from it; as I struggled with this years ago on ubuntu 14 or so as well, but I have 18 installed now.
/edit "Not showing up", is meaning when I use the finder and tap "user" and then open "Add users", and then use my password to unlock. It only shows my intiali user account "Conrad Braam" in there.
By "setting it to not system", basically I saw a note about editing /var/lib/AccountsService/users/jenkins
and changed the line
but now I notice, that that change has reverted/not saved? Hmmm. Rebooting again.
id -u jenkins
and I get a response
Which strikes me as unexpected or arbitrary. So I do need to set it to something > 1000, but something about the user files is still locked, I might just need help deleting or chown'ing the existing jenkins user files?
