Hey, noob question here. I recently created a new user on my pi, using the command: sudo adduser (user name). I logged in fine. The only problem was that my desktop wasn't the desktop. It had all of the pi's folders in a row. I logged out and kind of flipped for a second, then I tried to log back in. The second time it didn't even log in. It said that the permission was denied. I'm not sure what's going on.. Help.

This is reason # 91231 why creating another user on the Pi is problematic.

As I've said before, if you're doing this solely as a learning experience, then, sure, go ahead, but expect lots of problems (and lots of learning!).

But if you're doing it from a "I just want it to work" context, then it is not too late to "Turn back, oh man!"

Just use the built-in 'pi' user.

Or, lobby your Raspbian maintainers/developers to come up with a "userclone" command.
