Re: added useradd/adduser - hostname doesn't show on this user's command prompt.
Did you create the new user with the command line utility? If so then I believe Ubuntu will create a new user with the /bin/sh shell instead of the /bin/bash shell, you can test by typing "echo $SHELL" into a terminal and if this is the problem you can easily correct it with this command
just replace NEWUSER with the problematic user's name, and prepend the sudo command if you are not already logged in as this user
chsh -s /bin/bash NEWUSER
