Hi etereo,

you should really consider to read the Beginner's Guide. :-)

Write:

man useradd

To see the manual in your terminal.

Or read/print the Beginners guide:
http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Beg … tup_groups

(edit: too late - omg, how did I manage to spend 4 minutes writing 5 lines... or maybe I just need a "refresh-before-posting" - conky-ticker.)

Re: can't login as root with gnome...

If you want your user to be a member of a group with the same name as the user, then create that group before you create the user. You can not add a user to a non-existing group.

The default in arch is not to have such a group, but there is nothing wrong with making one if you want it.
