Re: Wake-on-USB Causes Immediate Wakeup after Suspend

I updated to Linux Mint 19.2 and having the same issue. Any ideas? I have no idea where to start. I need wake-on-USB because my laptop power button isn't reachable.

Wake-on-USB Causes Immediate Wakeup after Suspend

I'm running Linux Mint 18.1 I had set up Wake-on-USB years ago and it worked fine. However for the last year I can't put my PC to sleep or else it immediately wakes up after a brief second of the fans shutting down and everything going to sleep. As a first step, I followed the steps here to disable ...

Re: Cinnamon high CPU usage in Mint 18

For fellow dumb people out there, I had this issue after accidentally installing gnome-session. It changed my default desktop environment to Cinnamon (software rendering) without me noticing. After uninstall GNOME, I noticed the different C icon in the top-right corner of my login windo, logged in u...

Re: How to Configure Autologin?

Well, I was able to fix that issue. Moral of the story, don't use -R when doing chmod/chown with an encrypted file system.

I think autologin isn't compatible with an encrypted filesystem, so I'll just mark it closed and deal with the first-world problem of typing in a password haha.

Re: How to bypass sudo password prompt at login?

Thanks. Strangely enough, that is a possible solution to my other thread posted here: viewtopic.php?f=90&t=238784

For this specific issue, I just want to avoid entering my password for an application that requires sudo every single time I log in.

[SOLVED] How to Decrypt Home Folder on Boot

I cannot seem to decrypt my /home/username folder anymore . SOLUTION: If you're booting and your files are encrypted, don't be the typical Linux noob like myself. Basically, if your files are encrypted, whatever you do, do NOT do any chmods/chowns of your /home/username folder recursively. I fixed ...

Re: How to Configure Autologin?

Okay, tried that. Now it seems I can log in, but it's a black screen with the initial install Linux Mint Serena welcome menu you see the first time you log in. I can't do anything though. I used 644 because MDM yelled at me saying 644 was required on that folder. I was reading that you can't have an...

Re: How to Configure Autologin?

Done. Still getting the exact same error when clicking on my username. I've read it may be due to executing a GUI application using sudo (which I was trying at startup--see other thread of mine), but I've deleted those three edits and had removed the program from startup programs, so I'm back to my ...

Re: How to Configure Autologin?

Now I'm locked out :(. I can't log in at all after going to Users and Groups and checking a single box, "Do not require password at login". Now I'm stuck to using my phone. How do I change this back from the CTRL alt f1 terminal?

I'm not sure if this is a Mint-specific question but figured I'd ask here since I'm stuck at the moment. Running a fresh install of Serena 18.1 Cinnamon. I have a VPN, Mullvad, that I want to run at login, but it requires the super user password to authenticate. I get the popup "Authentication is ne...

Re: How to Configure Autologin?

Yes, I had to type that line in. I only had AutomaticLoginEnable=true and TimedLoginEnable=false in that section before. I don't have my install media anymore, but I can redownload it if that will help. I'm assuming you'd just like to verify my install media had the correct files on it with that com...
