Adding Users with Superadduser


Adding users to a system can be tedious. It involves creating an account, setting a password, and creating a home directory. This tip shows how to make adding users easier with the use of superadduser.
Code Listing 1: Install superadduser
# emerge app-admin/superadduser
or
# apt-get install superadduser
or
... 


Using superadduser is very easy. Just run the command and follow the prompts.
Code Listing 2: Using superadduser
// Replace the examples with your own information
# superadduser
Login name for new user [ ]: johndoe
User id for johndoe [ defaults to next available]:
Initial group for johndoe [ users]:
Additional groups for johndoe (seperated with commas, no spaces) []:
johndoe's home directory [ /home/johndoe]:
johndoe's shell [ /bin/bash]:
johndoe's account expiry date (YYYY-MM-DD) [ ]:
OK, I'm about to make a new account.
Here's what you entered so far:
New login name: johndoe
New UID: [ Next available]

Initial group: users
Additional groups:
Home directory: /home/johndoe
Shell: /bin/bash
