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.
