Hi
I want to move a home directory from /home/lynn to /home2/lynn

I used Yast to set the new directory. All is well but now I do not show up
in the ldxe login screen (I have to type my username rather than click on
my icon in the login list) and login takes over 3 minutes.

Curious.

Not showing in the list might indicate it lists directories in /home.
Create a new directory for no user in /home and check.

The delay no idea.

Moving back to /home/lynn works fine.

I've also tried editing /etc/passwd directly with the same results. I have
emptied my .cache folder and also emptied /tmp. I'm using lxdm login
manager. Permissions are corect on the new folder. Why does the new login
take so long?

Try creating a new user there, see if it behaves the same.

There are other temporary spaces under /var something. One longterm.
