How to manage users and permissions in Fedora?

In Fedora, users and permissions can be managed using command line tools. Here are some commonly used commands:

  1. Create a new user with the username provided.
  2. Delete the user with the specified username using superuser privileges.
  3. Change the password for the user “username” by using administrative permissions.
  4. Modify the user’s name to “New Name” using the command sudo usermod.
  5. Display the contents of the file /etc/passwd.
  6. Add the user “username” to the group “groupname” using sudo.
  7. Change the file permissions of the filename.
  8. Change the owner and group of the file to a specific owner and group.

Furthermore, Fedora also offers graphical tools for managing users and permissions, which can be found under the “Settings” menu in the “Users” option, allowing for user and permission management through a graphical interface.
