can I just

Or am I asking for trouble ? Seems a bit brutal to me !


Many thanks to you guys ... /etc/deluser.conf was spot on ...

I tried the backup = "1" option and killed the user via KDE, it deleted the user but did not generate a backup. I assume this is because the current "working directory" is unclear
when KDE is running ?
