Solved
https://wiki.pine64.org/index.php/Pinebo....2C_etc...
Once the machine reboots press Alt-Ctrl-F1 to bring up a text terminal
After root logout. Log into the text terminal as yourself to fix login error: "Configured directory for incoming files does not exist"; <--- wrong
Should be...
"Press Alt-Ctrl-F7 to go back to the login screen and then login as the normal user"
Then use terminal
blueman-services
Select "Transfer" tab and set "Incoming Folder" to myself

I'm looking to add a new user for my spouse.

I'm all set with updating root and changing rock users. The Wiki was very helpful there. I expected to see an option under Administration to set up users but nothing is there. I did "sudo adduser" at the command line and I was able to add her. Unfortunately, her user doesn't have all the same functionality as the changed "rock" users does. Also, the keyboard isn't mapped right for her. What's the "right" way to add a user?

More than 1 way to skin a cat
adduser can also add a group ,,, adduser $USER sudo ,, etc, etc (1group per cmd)
type id, shows what groups your login is in, OR id $USER for user's groups
(all as root or sudo)
