7.3. The Live user

Username FIXME.

One important consideration is that the live user is created by live-initramfs during bootup, it is not created by live-helper when building the image.

You can specify additional groups that the live user will belong to by preseeding the passwd/user-default-groups debconf value. For example, to add the live user to the fuse group, add the following to a file in the config/chroot_local-preseed directory:

 debconf passwd/user-default-groups string audio cdrom dialout floppy video plugdev netdev powerdev fuse

For more information about debconf preseeding, please see Section 5.2.3, “Preseeding Debconf questions”.
