Change from no password to password boot

Postby farna on Mon Apr 08, 2013 7:10 pm

Hope I'm in the right area! When I installed Mint on my computer (Mint 12) I installed so that no password was required to boot. Well, things have changed and I'd like to make it so that a password IS required. Is there an easy way to do this without reinstalling?? I can follow command line instructions, but not real familiar with them in Linux. I couldn't find anything in Control Panel that looked promissing...
