Re: [help-a-newb] adduser okay? (problem with authenticating with gui users-groups manager)
Concur. Unlike windows tools, Linux GUI tools (should) build on the existing command line tools. So using the command line version should give you the same effect as using the gui. Case in point, I use apt-get or aptitude (primarily the latter), instead of synaptic or one of the gui tools available. For me, its the way I was brought up, and if I am honest, apt-get install <foo> is far quicker than opening synaptic, searching through the packages, selecting and installing.
