    FreeBSD User Management

    I've been trying to find a graphical user management program for the longest time and I can't find one. I can use any user management tool for FreeBSD and I can use a linux one and just use the Linux emulation to run it.

    Any tips?

    FreeBSD is Open Source. If you have a problem with it, spend a year coding the solution and then share it with the world. After all - you got it for free.
    Away.

    I don't know about you, but I prefer not using a GUI for most tasks. Not only can you see and do more, it also feels more productive. And you should see the look on people's faces when they watch you work, you look like you're really *doing* something.

    But no, I don't know of any GUI user management programs for FreeBSD. Though I'm sure somebody has written one somewhere. Try the newsgroups and mailing lists.

    Run this: /stand/sysinstall
    No dont install anything, scroll down to configure, hit enter.
    Now scroll down to USER MANAGEMENT.
    Now you have a nice prety ncurses menu based *GRAPHICAL* user interface to your lusers.

    All you can do is add and delete users, no modification is available through sysinstall (I already checked b4 you even said that).

    Thanks anyways.

    KDE's KUser seems to what you're looking for ...
    $ENV: FreeBSD, gcc, emacs

    It's not graphical, but you could make modifications easier by using a shell script.
