Dear Folks,

The KDE developers have asked me to refer this to you.  See KDE Bug 107108.

For clarification, the default first user created by default during 
installation of Kubuntu was 1000.  The second user, created with the 
Kuser interface had UID 500; whereas with the adduser command, the 
second user UID was 1001.  I think the latter is correct.  The file 
/etc/adduser.conf is also attached for completeness.

The home page creation error was that the home page could not be 
created, even though I was using sudo with Kuser.  It was created 
without fuss from the command line with adduser.

FYI, please.

# /etc/adduser.conf: `adduser' configuration.
# See adduser(8) and adduser.conf(5) for full documentation.

# The DSHELL variable specifies the default login shell on your
# system.

# The DHOME variable specifies the directory containing users' home
# directories.

# If GROUPHOMES is "yes", then the home directories will be created as
# /home/groupname/user.

# If LETTERHOMES is "yes", then the created home directories will have
# an extra directory - the first letter of the user name. For example:
# /home/u/user.

# The SKEL variable specifies the directory containing "skeletal" user
# files; in other words, files such as a sample .profile that will be
# copied to the new user's home directory when it is created.

# FIRST_SYSTEM_[GU]ID to LAST_SYSTEM_[GU]ID inclusive is the range for UIDs
# for dynamically allocated administrative and system accounts/groups.

# FIRST_[GU]ID to LAST_[GU]ID inclusive is the range of UIDs of dynamically
# allocated user accounts/groups.

# The USERGROUPS variable can be either "yes" or "no".  If "yes" each
# created user will be given their own group to use as a default, and
# their home directories will be g+s.  If "no", each created user will
# be placed in the group whose gid is USERS_GID (see below).

# If USERGROUPS is "no", then USERS_GID should be the GID of the group
# `users' (or the equivalent group) on your system.

# If QUOTAUSER is set, a default quota will be set from that user with
# `edquota -p QUOTAUSER newuser'

# If DIR_MODE is set, directories will be created with the specified
# mode. Otherwise the default mode 0755 will be used.

# If SETGID_HOME is "yes" home directories for users with their own
# group the setgid bit will be set. This was the default for
# versions << 3.13 of adduser. Because it has some bad side effects we
# no longer do this per default. If you want it nevertheless you can
# still set it here.
