Sometimes it's nice to have a gmail user to give people without accounts on your computer a quick way to access their Gmail account (this can be easily modified to use Yahoo or any other service) this is easy as Linux is so configurable.
#!/bin/sh sudo useradd -p password gmail sudo cat /etc/shadow | sed "s|gmail:.*:\([0-9]*\):\([0-9]*\):\([0-9]*\):\([0-9]*\):::|gmail::\1:\2:\3:\4:::|" | sudo tee /etc/shadow # Remove password from gmail user. sudo pacman -S ratpoison pacman -S uzbl-tabbed cd /home/gmail echo "exec ratpoison" > .xinitrc echo "exec uzbl-browser google.com/mail" > .ratpoisonrc mkdir -p .config/uzbl echo "set always_insert_mode = 1" > .config/uzbl/config
And that should be it, you can now login with your login manager as gmail and go straight to your gmail.
