Okay, I have looked it up there's not a lot on resetting a user account so it has a /Home directory which the gui apparently finds important. I'm not sure how I missed that, maybe when I formatted the filesystem over the partition and re-did the whole system install.

So far my info says: #useradd -m -G users,wheel,audio,video,dialout,portage,plugdev,disk,cdrom -s /bin/bash <dude's name>
Like I said, there's not a lot of info about removing the user and resetting the account (ie. adding him again with correct parameters). Anyone wanna help the dope out?

man usermod for user modification

man gpasswd for user group management

man userdel for user account deletion.
