This may be possible using a single command but a very small and simple script though.Here we are deleting last 3 lines from a file.

#!/bin/bash
#Assign the number of lines to be deleted to variable "a"
a=3
i=1
while [ $i -le $a ]
do
sed -i '$d' file
i=$(($i + 1))
done

one time changing of default user's home directory while adding newuser

Posted 01-17-2012 at 05:28 AM by dinakumar12

vim /etc/default/useradd

Look for this line

HOME=/home

change /home to your own directory

save the file and try adding new user by useradd username

Now the new user should be created with your own preferred directory.
