Unable to initialize cargo package

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?

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.
