Hi, I am a Linux user but not expert, I created three user account, In graphical user interface when I want to change user identity, I need to logoff first then I can log in by different user id, is there any way that user can login in same terminal in different user ids?
How can I log in same terminal with different user ids?
There is a very easy way to solve your problem in Red Hat Linux OS.
You just need to use simple commands from your graphs or CUI terminal is that given below
# su <user name>
# su – <user name >
The difference between the two commands is that the first one can preserve the before user privilege and the second one will take new user's privilege.
