Access to pre-existing shared /home partition (solved)

I've just installed sparky LXQt (first time with sparky) and followed the recommendation in the wiki: use a different nickname if you want to keep the existing shared /home partition. What happens now is from a sparky session I can't access the material I previously had in my /home partition, while the idea was/is to access my material regardless of the distro I choose to work with (I've got four installed, right now). Is there a way for me to use sparky just like I use the other three, at this regard?
BTW, the recommendation in the wiki mentions that the procedure of using a different nickname is to avoid future problems. What kind of problems could those be?

Using different nickname is important to avoid messing new user settings with the old one.
New user dir is located in /home/new-user, but old one in /home/old-user
Simply copy/move your settings/files from old dir to the new one.
