Okay, what you need to do is this...
Open the file manager by clicking on the button that looks like a house. You are in the root login by the way. Root's "home" directory is always in the /root
section of the file system.
This can be confusing. the "root" of the filesystem is not the same place
The filesystem root
is where it all starts, the highest part of the file tree, and a single slash shows it like this /
The root user
, also known as super user
and in Windows language administrator
, is in one of the directories off that document root. Because all administration needs to be done by someone who has root privileges
, the directory is called /root
Starting from the root home directory, go up one level, where you will see all of the first level subdirectories, with unusual names like /boot /etc /mnt /usr
and so on.
There should be one called /home
- but there is not. You need to create it. Right click, scroll down to new
, select directory
and type the name home
over the default directory name NewDir
Important. Use lower case for directory names - and preferably filenames too. And no spaces between words
Change into that directory, then create another new directory within it, called newuser
Open another instance of root's Home directory by clicking on the house either on the desktop or next to the start menu button.
Go up one level, select the etc
directory. click on the "skel" directory and drag it to the /home/newuser
directories you have just created. Pick copy, not move, and the structure is transferred.
You are now free to create new users (even the grafpup user got lost). You can also change the root password if you want to. And also organise automatic logins, etc, etc, but that is another topic altogether
Best of luck my friend. Linux and Unix are not frightening. They only look that way
After all a response by Windows like "Illegal Command" is just as nerve-racking imho.
Welcome to the land of sanity with grafpup. It's a goodie to use too
Ask as much as you like. That's what forums are for - at least some are
We all acquired what we know now through asking others, none of us figured it all out by ourselves...
