[Solved] Lightdm switch user doesnt work with locked screen

When I lock the screen and click the switch user icon at the login screen nothing happens.
I then unlock the screen to see a dialog saying, "You do not seem to be logged in on the console. Starting a new login only works on the console."

Linux Mint 18.3
Cinnamon 3.6.6
lightdm 1.18.3

Boot problems seemingly random

Now and then, about a month or so apart or close, I experience problems where my hdd is not recognized. I have to boot from a live cd, install boot-repair and go through a bunch of copying and pasting commands. I don't recall this happening before installing mint 18. I have no idea what's causing it.

Re: Can't add desktop icons to other user account

NEvermind. It was a permissions problem. Somehow the Desktop dir on that account got marked as read-only.

Can't add desktop icons to other user account

I'm running mint 18 cinnamon 64 bit, and I can add icons from the menu to the desktop and panel under my account, but another user can't add icons to the desktop at all. The only icons on the desktop in that account are the ones chosen in settings. I've tried click and drag and right-click in the me...

Re: systemd evil or not?

That's a paragon of beating a dead horse. There are thousands of discussions on systemd all over the place, if you're really interested, just use google. Short story: No it's not evil and it's de facto a standard in the Linux world in 2016. Not officially obviously but the reality is if Mint didn't...

Re: Systemd

I just installed slackware on my laptop. I will put freebsd on my home server, and this desktop will probably go to slackware after Linux Mint falls. If devuan looks feasible by then, I will use that.

Re: Devuan (DevOne) Fork of Debian, systemd, and Linux Mint

I would like to see the answer to this question myself. I really like linux mint, but I don't think I'll stick around for an OS slowly being devoured by the init system.

Should Nautilus be removed?

Re: Linux Mint 12, and beyond?

Drop Gnome3/Unity as DE completely, make LXDE the default Desktop in 'Standard' Mint 12, so Lubuntu would be a good base for Mint 12. If people want Gnome 3 or Unity they can install it from the software packages. Not including Gnome 3 out of the box would be a hint towards the Gnome devs as well a...

John that has happened a couple times here too. Also, now and then, gdm only lists my account in the login screen, even though there are others. I have to restart.

When I run the package manager, whether it is synaptic or the "Install codecs" tool or the driver tool, the download progress seems frozen, then it updates. only like every 5 or 10 seconds, but this doesn't happen while downloading pac...
