I would like to change the name that I see when logging in. For some reason when setting up ubuntu it ask you for a username but then it uses your real name instead as a username, why is it done this way?
Please change my username to one of the following, in order of declining marginal preference
Here is my profile address:
Before creating the account, I changed my username for Ubuntu One which I thought would make the username for ubuntu forums different as well, but instead it used my username at my email address's domain, which is gmail.com.
Hi there. I have been on this board since 2006 with my current username. I just recently joined the [H] Distributed Computing (BOINC) team and would like to see if I could have my current username changed to my BOINC username - RFGuy_KCCO? Is that possible to do? I would really appreciate any help that can be provided to make this change happen. Thanks in advance!
When I registered it automatically assigned me a username based on my real name. I would like it changed to match my username on other forums. My prefered username would be "odiogoferreira".
I am a little confused about the username thing. I would expect the username to be the name I log in with. I think it's safe to say most people would guess that. Why is it done this way? Instead you log in with your full name, strange. Also, why is it so hard to change, I mean I have to change directories just to change my name, and do it all from terminal.
