I have a user account provided by client with unrestricted
sudo access, but this user has no home directory. I want to create one, but I'm not sure how to go about it.
I tried logging in as my normal user and
sudo suing into root, then running
usermod -d /home/user -m user
But it gaves the message
usermod: no changes. I assume because my user is already logged in?
Other solutions seem to involve removing and re-creating my user account with a home directory, but again as user would be already logged in I think there may be problems with that approach.
Is there a way to create my user's home directory with the access I have, or do I need to inform my client/provider to recreate my account?
