comment Home folder structure in Ubuntu 12.04.1?
so now, you should delete your previous user account, restart and log into root account, and run usermod -l new -m -d /home/new old where new and old are obviously your old and new (ie intended) usernames. In this case, you should take your new username to be the one you deleted, and the old one to be the name you gave to this account. There are some path side-effects with this process, but if you say your installation is new, then this should not cause any problems.

That was really helpful, I understand the need for that syntax now! Your edit is a great explanation, and I want to thank you for taking time to explain it to me :)

comment update PATH variable in .bashrc using sed
Thank you! This worked exactly like it was planned! If you don't mind, I have some questions about the syntax: 1. Why is the ^ necessary? 2. Why must there be ' and " around $PATH?
