Can't change my username. I get an error

Hi, I’m trying to change my username in the user settings in KDE Plasma, but when I try to save it, I get the error

and it won’t allow me to save the changes. I’m trying to change my username from “liaml” to simply being “liam”

You likely can’t change your username while logged in with it.
Connect to the root account – if you gave it the same password at installation – or create another temporary superuser account for making that change.

Be sure to familiarize yourself with the implications and gotchas of such action.


Thanks. I won’t worry about it than. It wasn’t urgent.
