After manipulating the built-in user, the Octoprint service becomes unavailable.
Perhaps, according to the algorithm: install pure Raspbian -> delete / rename the default account -> put Octoprint not in «home / pi» directory everything will work as i would like to. But I do not have enough time.
Is it possible to save time and in the complete OctoPi image remove the built-in user so that octoprint.service does not become «Active: active (exited)» and remains accessible via the web interface?
I tried to solve my problem according to the instructions: http://unixetc.co.uk/2016/01/07/how-to-rename-the-default-raspberry-pi-user/
So, here is the result. User is renamed successfully. Service is available. Groups are registered. The owner of the directories has been reassigned, everything seems to be fine, but after rebooting the Raspberry the mentioned above problem appears.
Please help if you know how to do it.
