Linux Question

List all Linux users without systen users

I would like to list all users in Linux without showing systen-user.
How can I make this only the username .

For example

cut -d: -f1 /etc/passwd
, I can see all users + system users.

Thanks for help


This shows all users with uid less than 999:

awk  -F':' '$3>999 {print $1 " uid: " $3}' /etc/passwd | column -t | grep -v nobody


With cut showing only human users:

cut -d: -f1,3 /etc/passwd | egrep ':[0-9]{4}$' | cut -d: -f1
