Hi and Welcome to LinuxQuestions,

Another more 'user-friendly' is
Code:

Kind regards,

FYI

The diffrence between useradd vs adduser:

useradd is a command.

adduser is a script that call useradd ans make the creation of new user more firendly.
The default settings of adduser script is stored in /etc/adduser.conf (On Ubuntu)
