I'm having an issue with the Command Line Interface. I'm running Precise 12.04 armhf on a BeagleBone and all the functionality works fine that I need. I have a 'cosmetic problem' when logged in as the non-default user. The command line is simply a "$" no matter what directory I'm on. When I'm logged in as the default user it reads "user@hostname/directory". Also autocomplete (tab completion) seems to be disabled when I'm using the other user. I can use 'su' and switch to and from the default username and get a different looking prompt ("$" and "user@hostname/directory"). Pretty sure it's an easy fix. Help!
Answer found. I checked the /etc/passwd file and found that the shell for the user in question was /bin/sh not /bin/bash. Editing the shell fixed the issue.
