How To - Set the default content of a new user's home directory using /etc/skel


When you create a user account on a Linux system and ask it to create a home directory, some files are automatically added to it e.g. - .bashrc, .bash_history etc. How does that happen or how can I add/remove files to a user's home during the creation of his account? This is all taken care of by the /etc/skel directory.
