Hi all!

I changed my username via `usermod -l newname oldname` and I also changed
my home folder name accordingly. However, now when I start emacs, it says
`/home/oldname/.emacs.d does not exist. Create it?`. I removed the whole
`/home/newname/.emacs.d/.cache` folder. And I tried to find any env vars
that contain `/home/oldname` via `apropos-value` - couldn't find anything
that stands out.

How do I make it work with my new username without removing the whole

Best regards,
