My understanding is, there is no way to change your username at this time.

The superuser or root of your system may be able to help you out.

Only the superuser or root user on an OpenSUSE system can modify user's login and access rights.

The superuser or root user is also the System Administrator.  The System Administrator is the only person with the ability to do this.  It may be alot of work for the su or root user to create a new login and copy all your files to the new login.

If you are the System Administrator or su, you need to login as su and create a new account and transfer all your files to the new account.

It is best not to give your personal accounts su or root priviledge.  OpenSUSE, Linux works best when the principle of least priviledge is applied.

Futureboy was right, unless your System Administrator has the time to create a new account and move all your directories and files to it.

I'd be able to edit User details in YaST's User and Group Management.
