View Full Version : [ubuntu] Not geting bash prompt.....

June 8th, 2011, 10:02 AM
Hi Friends,
I create one user by the following command....

#sudo useradd -d /home/parag.n -m parag.n
#sudo passwd parag.n

After creating user, when i logged in with that user, i am not able to get bash promt. When i start terminal i get only ( $ ), where generally we get ( username@localhost# ).

Please help me out from this......

Thank You,
Parag Nehete.

Do this

cp /etc/skel/.bashrc /home/parag.n/ && . ~/.bashrc

And use adduser rather than useradd next time.

Congratulations by the way, you are the recipient of my 5000th post :popcorn:

Hey, i run the command which you give me but it is not working. Do u have any other solution on this? And thank you so much for the information. I tried with "useradd" command & get prompt also. But need it for my exist user.
