Now for the procedure:
For user that believes they would be better served with UID/GID of 1000 this is a proposed work around. I have tested this on hardware PC’s and in VBox and in seems to work OK. I see no effect on how I use shared folder in VBox for instance.
Hypothetical user name
user. Where you see
user in commands change that to your actual user name.
After installation boot to console mode. Login as root. (This also works on an existing system in test situation.)
# usermod -u 1000 user
# groupmod -g 1008 lusers
# groupmod -g 1000 user
$ sudo chown -R user:user $HOME
To check our work
Check ownership of folders in /home/user:
$ ls -l /home/user
Check UID of user:
$ id -u user
Check GID of:
$ id -g user
What we have done:
Changed UID and GID of user user to 1000. Changed GID of luser 1008.
Set user and group ownership of everything in /home/user to user.
No password or permissions were changed.
Works just fine in test situations. Tested on hardware PC’s and in VBox VM’s. Nothing changed as far as how shared folder works in VBox that I have seen so far.
