I installed a lock screen theme and it gives a blank screen when it loads. So I figured out how to delete it but I need my username. Can any one help?

1 Answer 1


A user's home directory name will usually be the same as the username, so one way would be

ls /home

A more formal way would be to look at the password entries for non-system users e.g.

getent passwd | awk -F: '$3 > 999 {print $1}'
