The Debian Jessie User Accounts?
#1
I am using the Debian Jessie OS but I cannot locate the User Accounts Application. I want to change my personal information like Name and Password, etc.

what desktop?

I am using the MATE desktop that comes with the Debian OS. Everything at this time is to review the Pine64+ and its software.

Any suggestions to improve on the Debian experience would be most appreciative.

I installed the Gnome Users and Groups module from mate tools package after screwing up with adduser. :-)
Unfortunately, I can't remember the name of the package or the module.

Hey CaptainZalo

I believe that all LINUX Operating systems should have a USER ACCOUNTS app for accessing personal information such as your name, your password, etc, so that we can better secure our little Pine64s.

you could try the usermod commandline tool, or vipw. I would likely use the latter because Im used to it, but one should be careful not to mess with the formatting of the user info - just change what needs changing.
