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.

<source>#!/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 yaourt -S uzbl-git cd /home/gmail echo "exec ratpoison" > .xinitrc echo "exec uzbl-browser" > .ratpoisonrc mkdir -p .config/uzbl echo "set always_insert_mode = 1" > .config/uzbl/config</source>

And that should be it, you can now login with your login manager as gmail with the password: password and go straight to your gmail.
