Thread: Hard coded /home/knoppix into skel files

    Hard coded /home/knoppix into skel files

    Hi,

    When adding a new user on a Knoppix system (most probably because you have installed it onto your hard drive), the string '/home/knoppix' will be incorrectly hard-coded into your configuration files (stuff in your home directory) because it is hard coded into /etc/skel

    To do a simple find and replace, issue this command all on one line, while logged in as the new user. (Replace YOUR_USER_NAME with.. you guessed it

    for i in `grep -rlis \/home\/knoppix ~`; do perl -p -i -e
    "s/\/home\/knoppix/\/home\/YOUR_USER_NAME/g" "$i"; done

    Hope that helps,

    - Andrew
