Unable to initialize cargo package

kriv02
kriv02

I am unable to use cargo to create a new project. When I execute 'cargo new guessinggame', it fails, and returns 'Failed to create package "guessinggame" at "home/runner/guessinggame"

Caused by:
could not determine the current user, please set $USER'
This also happens when I run 'cargo init' on an already extant directory. Does anybody know how to fix this?

How do you have repl.it do that then? Just putting the import command in the file doesn't work, and I can't seem to find anything else on how to do it.

yeah it doesn’t say anything about r in the docs either.. hm. How about we take a stab at that “$USER” problem first. Might as well I guess. I can try and look a little closer later on if we are still not getting anything.

ok so to fix the user thing, I think you can just configure the run button to run the r program as normal with cargo or however you do it, but also adding before that the command export USER="/home/runner/repl_name" where repl_name in this case is Testingstuff. To configure the run button, you must make a file called .replit and then type in that file run="command" where command is the things you want it to do on run.

That didn't work. The export command parses, but then cargo sends the same error message.

dam. maybe I got the placement wrong? Try ~/Testingstuff. Or maybe it’s something else..
