Yep, I read that. Using a straight forward name. No funny characters. I also notice that there is no field for a password.

{SOLVED} Cannot Add a New User!

I go to the user panel, enter my password and get the add new user button. I click the button, add the information in but it will not allow me to add the new user. The "Add" button next to the cancel will not light up for me to use.

Is there a way to fix this?

Using Mint 18 Cinnamon.

Thanks :)

Re: How to stop Suspend and Hybernate in Cinnamon

The option you want to change is the last in your list: Lock the computer when inactive This is called "lock", because this is, what really happens: Nobody can use the computer with your account, who cannot enter the password. Until this has happened - the computer is locked. The visual screensaver...

Re: How to stop Suspend and Hybernate in Cinnamon

The power settings control - the power settings, in this case the monitor. The screensaver settings are controlled in the - screensaver settings. It sounds, as if during your search you have set this also to never; set it again to the time you want (default = 10 minutes). Ok call my blonde.... but ...

Re: How to stop Suspend and Hybernate in Cinnamon

Obviously you overlooked it. You have to set in the power settings the first option to -> never. But why did write a topic title about suspend and hibernate, if this does not appear in your question at all? I thought that is what it was called, my bad. I tried that option and when I use never I don...

I just tried to install from Oracle, rebooted and still not seeing it Exactly which package did you download from Oracle? And what installation method did you try? gdebi? apt-get/dpkg from command line? Did you get any error messages? If so, what were they? And do you also have virtualbox-qt instal...

All good, just curious if there was differences and what they were. I will play with it. Since it's easy to uninstall, I can install a different version if it's not what I need.

Re: How to remove an unwanted OS on a multi boot system?

I am in the process of installing Cinnamon but concerned that it is not giving me the option to install as a 2nd OS (i.e. multi boot). It wants to erase the hard drive to install. Not sure how to proceed. I always install a second OS using the Something Else option in the installation program, whic...

Re: How to remove an unwanted OS on a multi boot system?

Thanks for all your help everyone. I have made a decision, I am just going to start all over and just use Cinnamon. For me this is going to be the easiest way to do this. I am not that far along in configuring Mate on this new computer so it will not take too long to get everything back and running.

Re: How to remove an unwanted OS on a multi boot system?

So if I am understanding you correctly, I can install the 2nd OS from the software manager? No, what JChristensen means is another desktop environment, that is something different than an OS. An OS is always a separate installation in a separate partition. This is not to insist in words, but to pre...

Re: How to remove an unwanted OS on a multi boot system?

You can, in fact, install the Cinnamon Desktop in addition to your Mate Desktop in one Mint installation. You will see comments that it works well, and you will find warnings that it could lead to strange problems. I would advise that it is something you probably don't want to try. Maybe you will h...
