Enable auto login

Hi,

Installed a Mint 20 Cinnamon for a friend using login password.
Only one account (admin).
Afterwards he wants to switch to auto login but doesn't work.
He fills his account in the field, reboots and the password is still being asked for and needed to login.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

Re: Hotspot. How to change SSID name and use WPA2?

Throw away any Hotspot in:

Code: Select all

/etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/
Then use the "Use as hotspot... option ?

Re: Linux Mint and Windows PSU question

When the current drawn is less then x amount the PSU can turn off/go to sleep.
The setting increases the (idle) power draw to prevent that happening.

I doubt it's the cause but in trying it there's no harm done.

Re: Lenovo will ship Thinkpads with Fedora

We all "miss" things.

I think Linux is big for a long time already, just not for the average desktop user.

Re: DNS is working, but no internet

The WWW has been working out of the box (for about 4 months) until I changed the sub-net (from 10.106.x.x to 169.254.x.x) by just physically connecting to an other network branch (including domain name change) with an other DHCP server.
Very bad choice, change it to RFC1918 space.

Re: Do passwords expire?

I use KeepassXC to store passwords and copy from KeepassXC directly to the login
Do you mean highlight the password in KpXC, copy, paste into password field of forum?

Re: Samba shares over VPN

After you generated and copied the certs/keys and DH parameters, generate a tlscrypt.key: sudo openvpn --genkey --secret /etc/opevpn/certs/tlscrypt.key sudo chmod 0400 /etc/openvpn/certs/{ca.crt,server.crt,server.key,dh2048.pem,tlscrypt.key} Replace the file names between {} as generated by easyrsa....

Re: Samba shares over VPN

A little short on time right now ( but will help you ) but a good start would be here:
https://community.openvpn.net/openvpn/wiki/HOWTO
It's important to read it, especially since you will run your own server.
