I just created a new user on my system using
useradd -d /home/users/john -m john (Using Ubuntu 11.04). This worked fine, but when I changed to
john, my bash is not fully functional. That is, it has no autocomplete, I can not use they arrow keys (e.g. UP to get the last command), and instead of showing my current directory it only shows
$. I loaded a
.bashrc but this appears to be completely ignored. What could cause this?
PD: this user is already working on the system and I rather not remove it and add it again, if possible.
