Working in the terminal is sometimes like scratching around in the dark as a blind man. You think you have achieved something but you can’t see whether or not you actually did. So it is pretty useful sometimes to be able to quickly switch users and check if your changes actually works.
Of course, this is pretty simple if you know the command to do this (which I didn’t and had to look up – thus this quickfire blog post!)
To quickly switch users, enter:
Where username is the user account you wish to switch to. You will be prompted for that account’s password, and if entered in correctly, you’ll be switched over to that user account.
Simple and nifty.
Craig Lotter is an established web developer and application programmer, with strong creative urges (which keep bursting out at the most inopportune moments) and a seemingly insatiable need to love all things animated. Living in the beautiful coastal town of Gordon's Bay in South Africa, he games, develops, takes in animated fare, trains under whichever martial arts dojo is closest at the time, and for the most part, simply enjoys life with his amazing wife and daughter.
Oh, and he draws ever now and then too.
This is a collection of things that he has managed to find the time to scribble down since 2007.
