1 Setup users, groups, and passwords

Set a root password with passwd:

# passwd

Create an unprivileged (normal/everyday) user login (replace '<YOUR_USER_NAME>'):

# useradd -m <YOUR_USER_NAME>
# passwd <YOUR_USER_NAME>

Add your user to any special groups, if needed. eg:

# gpasswd -a <YOUR_USER_NAME> wheel

See User management for advanced examples of users and groups.

1.1 systemd

There are no special requirements for users and groups with a Parabola/systemd system.

1.2 OpenRC

A Parabola/OpenRC desktop system requires unprivileged users to be in some extra permission groups. See the OpenRC article for details.
