I created a new user with
useradd nameand forgot to use
-d -mto create their home directory. I tried making one, copying the contents of /etc/skel, and
chowning everything to the new user.
Aliases don’t work, such as
ll, and I just have a
$at the command prompt, instead of
[email protected] ~$. Also, using the scroll wheel dumps garbage on the command line 🙁
How do I fix this, or is it easier to delete the user and start over?
sudo adduser tempsudo deluser temp
sudo cp -r /home/temp /home/name
sudo chown -R name.name /home/name
