Linux - Vem är jag /home/user/ men sudo whoami säger root - FIX bash

$SUDO_USER doesn't work if you are using sudo su -.
It also requires multiple checks - if $USER == 'root' then get $SUDO_USER.
Instead of the command whoami use who am i. This runs the who command filtered for the current session. It gives you more info than you need. So, do this to get just the user:

who am i | awk '{print $1}'
 
Alternatively (and simpler) you can use logname. It does the same thing as the above statement.

This gives you the username that logged in to the session.
These work regardless of sudo or sudo su [whatever]. It also works regardless of how many times su and sudo are called.


 #----------------------------------------------------------
#Ta reda på vem du är
function findUser() {
    thisPID=$$
    origUser=$(whoami)
    thisUser=$origUser

    while [ "$thisUser" = "$origUser" ]
    do
        ARR=($(ps h -p$thisPID -ouser,ppid;))
        thisUser="${ARR[0]}"
        myPPid="${ARR[1]}"
        thisPID=$myPPid
    done

    getent passwd "$thisUser" | cut -d: -f1
}
user=$(findUser)
echo "logged in: $user"
