Login Window like windows XP

Postby ferdi-mint on Tue Oct 28, 2008 8:11 pm

in mint, i have to type my username and password to log in. Is is possible to change it like windows XP? i mean, i just have to click my user icon, type password, and log in.

By the way, my previous linux, mandrake 10, also use the same interface login (that is to click user icon, and type password)

thanks in advance.

go to xfce4 mintconfig and click on login window

then choose the the local tab.

select either themed or plain with face browser in the style selection box... that should do it.

You are posting in the XFCE area.
Xfce4 mintConfig is the control panel in Linux Mint XFCE CE.
I have a theme in XFCE that does this.
Once in the Login Preferences change the theme to Elyssa list.
Reopen the Login Preferences and make sure it hasn't changed to Random theme.
To change the Icon you see use Login Photo.
