updated to MATE1.6, now i cannot log out!

Postby dexl on Tue Dec 24, 2013 12:27 pm

I've just updated my LM13 Mate to include the latest Mate 1.6. Upon reboot, I saw this beautiful login screen. I managed to log in as one user, but now I'd like to log out and log in as another user. There is simply no way of doing that. When I log out, it takes me back straight to the user desktop I'm currently logged in as. Is this a bug? Thanks.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Hello, dexi.

I assume either your account has not got a password or you have configured automatic logon. Anyway, I think that this reply might help you, too: Switch off MDM parameter "SelectLastLogin"

Kind regards,
Karl

Hi, thanks for your reply, Karl. The problem actually got fixed by itself, I don't even know how. I just rebooted the second time by first shutting down the computer and switching it back on.
