I have a current /home/user/ directory for ~ but I want to change it to be at /user/home/
/user/home already exists.
The option of using
usermod is not going to work because I don't have access to the system as root or as another user.
I am asking for a solution along the lines of modifying some .bashrc file and changing some environment variable or smth similar. I log in via ssh.
I'm running Ubuntu 14.04.
Thank you in advance
Solutions like the ones below unfortunately aren't applicable to my case:
I thought I'd give some more info here rather than respond to the comments.
Currently the folder structure is a lot stranger than my example above, but the jist of it is the same. Ie currently when I do:
user@local:~$ ssh user@host
I end up in:
user@host:~$ user@host:~$ pwd /path/of/current/home/
so when I use things like
pip with the
--user tag it will install things locally.
Because there are some memory limitations as well as
ssh issues with writing to that location (after some time I can no longer write) I would like to have the following behaviour:
user@local:~$ ssh user@host user@host:~$ user@host:~$ pwd /path/of/new/home/
/path/of/new/home/ already exists and doesn't have the limitations set above.
