Re: Password Prompt

Re: BOOT MANAGER

Grub2 should chain load your windows boot loader. Since your Win drive probably doesn't have Grub2 installed you'll probably have to choose in BIOS which drive boots Grub2, then follow what catweazel posted

Re: Password Prompt

Thanks, I have seen and tried that. It certainly works, but that's not the behavior I want. In a list form this is the desired behavior: 1 - be prompted for login with my userid populated 2 - enter my password 3 - launch Chromium without being prompted for keyring password It seems that #1 is not ea...

Re: Password Prompt

I am really surprised :roll: that I'm unable to find a solution to this as populating userid is the default condition in both Ubuntu 12.10 & 13.04. This doesn't stop me from any testing or evaluation, just a minor annoyance since if I chose to autologin I still have to enter my password in keyri...

Re: incorrect installation

Boot from a live dvd or usb stick with the Mint version desired, launch gparted form live installation, delete undesired partitions.

gparted should identify the 'formatting' of each partition to aid you in this decision

This is how gparted displays my Linux only partitions.

Re: Triple Boot Install

but I have an installed hard drive with plenty of space and want to install Mint on an empty one Gig partition on this drive (which Gparted identifies as sda2). This is probably NOT the new drive you installed! Look in the upper left of gparted for a small arrow and choose /dev/sdb (I'm guessing th...

<SOLVED> Password Prompt

I'm wondering how to set up Mint 14 so that my userid is pre-populated, but password needs to be entered. Because this is an old system I'm using classic gnome no effects! I successfully, using 'login window, changed from entering both to entering neither, but now when I boot, I'm not prompted for e...
