I'm trying to create a new user account using a custom skeleton directory instead of the default
man useradd I'm pretty sure this should work:
useradd -m -d /home/foo -k /usr/local/etc/custom-skel foo
But it seems like the
-k attribute gets ignored and still the default
/etc/skel is used as the files (
.profile) still get copied from there to
/usr/local/etc/custom-skel contains one empty file to see if it gets copied to
/home/foo but it doesn't.
Am I missing something or is there a bug in
useradd or Raspbian?
I have this problem on Raspberry Pi 2 with fresh image of Raspbian GNU/Linux 9.1 (stretch). Not sure if this affects the issue.
