Ubuntu – How to manage users and groups using GUI


Just switched from 10.04 to 11.10. I'm wondering about the limited options in the GUI for managing users and groups. Where is the old GUI to change groups, id's, etc. I know that I can do this from cli, that's no problem. But I want this comfortable GUI back.

  • Gnome System Tools for 11.10 & later Ubuntu versions

    The old Users and Groups GUI is available by installing from Software Center the gnome-system-tools package
