Oops, pushed the wrong button, I wanted to save and not to send the


[rocketmouse@archlinux ~]$ gpasswd --help
Usage: gpasswd [option] GROUP

  -d, --delete USER             remove USER from GROUP

Note that some distros or perhaps desktop environments have more
security barriers that cause "issues", for some X applications you need
to run gksu, gksudo or kdesu, while for other distros there quasi is
nothing set up by default, you have to set up everything regarding to
accounts yourself, Arch Linux is one of those distros.
