Re: guest login only - no user choice anymore - need to get sudo rights

Well CTRL+ALT+F1 isn't doing anything.
I tried it after entering the passphrase and during the login screen.
I guess this command will open a terminal?

I see a the terminal login flashing up, but then it's goen again and I'm back in the login window
