I've just downloaded and installed the latest Debian Mate flavour of Linux Mint. The installation went fine, but when I try to boot, it asks for my username and password, but rejects them. Various solutions have been suggested in the forums so to forestall any repeats:
- there are just 2 and 1 characters respectively (no numbers, capitals..) in my username and password,
- although I'm using an azerty keyboard, the characters I use are in the same position as on a qwerty,
- I've tried using 'mint' as username and just pressing enter for password,
- I've also tried pressing 'e' during boot and putting 'nomodeset' between 'ro' and 'quiet splash'.
The computer runs Ubuntu 12.04 and WinXP without problems, and Mate runs fine from the dvd, so I don't think it's a hardware issue. Any ideas, please? Thanks a lot, Kaspin
