    Change username for live user


    I'm presently booting from a USB, and the default username is "ubuntu", and the default name of my computer is "ubuntu".

    I tried to go to System > Administration > Users and Groups, but only the username "root" is listed if the user "ubuntu" never existed...but on the terminal I can see I am "ubuntu"...

    Anybody can explain why this is so, and how I can change my username please?

    Its a better option to remaster the CD using your own username, using Ubuntu reconstructor.

    Post the contents of /etc/passwd here. You can see all users in the passwd file, whether they are interactive logins or service related.
