Re: How do I create a password for Linux Mint 19 Xfce

The fact that you seemed unaware of your original password made me wonder whether you have been doing the regular software updates. These are indicated by the shield-shaped icon in the panel (taskbar), which shows a green tick if everything is up-to-date or a blue symbol if there are updates to be ...

Re: How do I create a password for Linux Mint 19 Xfce

Hi Janesdf. I think you did create a password when installing Mint (I don't believe you can avoid it) and use this password when installing updates and such. But you might be referring to automatic login. Are you wanting to need to specifically log in when booting up instead of just booting straigh...

You did see that I posted my question in the "Newbie" forum, correct? I asked for the steps as when I check in menu, there is System, and Settings, but nothing titled Account Details in either.

I've looked through the menu and various files on my pc and there is nothing obvious to me (like in Windows 7) on how to create a password when I did not create one originally. I searched online and found various articles on how t...

Dash to Panel?

I'm about three weeks into using Linux Mint 19 Xfce, coming from Windows 7. I really like Aero Peek in Windows 7 where I could see a full screen of taskbar items and see my desktop, simply by hovering my cursor over the item. I read that Dash to Panel would allow me to do the same thing. I installed...
