Autologin to LMDE - few problems with GUI [Solved]

Postby Eko_taas on Sat Jan 08, 2011 3:18 pm

Trying to utilize LMDE (insteaded earlier Mint 9) as OS for our Media/tv-PC, but wondering few things (as in Mint 9 and 10 can do easy) - machines ON 24/7 and should be logged in with "standard"-user:

How to do work-arounds in LMDE:

1. In "Users and Groups" users Password selection "Don't ask for password on login" stays gray (=cannot select). I would like to "standard"-user

2. "Login Screen settings" / "Log in as" allows to select only main user (i.e. dropdown empty even if other users already activated and used).

Thanks

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

3. When auto-connecting network-drive (with Gigolo as FTP), I cannot be found that as earlier "/home/usr/.gvfs (as in Mint 9 and 10). I can see them in Nautilus, but e.g. Miro would like .gvfs-solution....

Found reason for this strange behavior: I installed both LM10 (1st) and LMDE in same machine
- with same "/home"
- same Main_user name / psw
- same normal_user name / psw

Looks that things got messed up always on 2nd entry of normal_user (main user was working OK).

After using LMDE (only) in other machine, from now only diff. users to be used (just to be on safe side) resulting:
- Item 1 not changed (stays gray),
- item 2 now working (can select also other user than main_user), so also 1 OK.
- Item 3. solved (with BA-NAS110) BY using NFS (fstab and autofs5 as per other advice from gurus), so all can see network drives easily
