    10.6.8; rm -rv user account folder; help to delete completely?
    Hello,

    Noob Mac using 10.6.8 on a mcbook pro; advanced novice with Ubuntu.

    I tried deleting a user (non-admin) account from system preferences, but it took a long while and I couldn't delete it.

    Finally, I opened a terminal; went to users and rm -rv the <user> I wanted to delete. Now , in the accounts panel, the <user> is still there.

    How can I remove the <user>?

    Thanks and rgds
