Installed Petra yesterday, installation was easy and smooth. Today I tried adding a new user Admin/Users and Groups clicked Add then filled out the pop up box, simple so far, then clicked Add, on pop up box, nothing happened, rebooted and tried again, same thing. So, am I doing something wrong or is there a bug? As a side issue I have also lost my "Computer" and "Home" icons from my desktop, although they are checked in System Settings/Desktop, I can add and remove the trash can...but removing and adding the "Computer" or "Home" icons do nothing.
Ok, a bit more info. Have managed to add a new user, but hey, the way it is done is crap. The pop up asks for Full Name: e.g. Frank Blogs, then User Name:(this is where it gets really weird) the username MUST be the users first name but all in lower case e.g. frank. It becomes more strange after you "Add" the new account, when you check the user it shows the "Username" as the "Group."
