    Command:

    runuser

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           runuser [OPTION]... [-] [USER [ARG]...]
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           Change  the  effective user id and group id to that of USER.  Only ses-
           sion PAM hooks are run, and there is no password prompt.  This  command
           is  useful  only  when run as the root user.  If run as a non-root user
           without privilege to set user ID, the command will fail as  the  binary
           is  not  setuid.  As runuser doesn't run auth and account PAM hooks, it
           runs with lower overhead than su.
    
           -, -l, --login
                  make the shell a login shell, uses runuser-l PAM file instead of
                  default  one,  clears  all  envvars except for TERM, initializes
                  HOME, SHELL, USER, LOGNAME and PATH
    
           -g --group=group
                  specify the primary group
    
           -G --supp-group=group
                  specify a supplemental group
    
           -c, --command=COMMAND
                  pass a single COMMAND to the shell with -c
    
           --session-command=COMMAND
                  pass a single COMMAND to the shell with -c and do not  create  a
                  new session
    
           -f, --fast
                  pass -f to the shell (for csh or tcsh)
    
           -m, --preserve-environment
                  do not reset HOME, SHELL, USER, LOGNAME environment variables
    
           -p     same as -m
    
           -s, --shell=SHELL
                  run SHELL if /etc/shells allows it
    
           --help display this help and exit
    
           --version
                  output version information and exit
    
           A mere - implies -l.   If USER not given, assume root.
