    step 1:

    For example
    useradd -m luther
     This will add the user account and create HOME directory for the user as well. Replace username with the name you wish to add.Home directory will be located at /home/user_name
    Step 2:
    Assign a password for the created user account with the passwd command: 
    passwd user_name 
     passwd luther
    It will prompt you for a new password, enter it and confirm the password again after pressing Enter key.
    Step 3:
    Add the created user account to sudo group to grant him root privileges to install Softwares applications and administrative tasks like adding a printer. 
    usermod -a -G sudo user_name
    usermod -a -G sudo luther
     -aMeans append or add  the user to other supplementary groups
    -GMeans specify the sudo supplementary group that the user will belong to.

    Step 4:
    Change the user's default shell to bash. Bash is GNU Bourne-Again Shell.It is an sh-compatible command language interpreter that executes commands read from the standard input or from a file.
