Re: no autologin Mint 18 Cinnamon

Just an update of an recently attempted 'fix' that's a kernel regression but resolves the auto-login issue here (so far). Installed LM 17.2. MATE and utilized kernel 3.16.0-38 Upgraded to LM 17.3 MATE and retained 3.16.0-38 Upgraded to LM 18 MATE and still used kernel 3.16.0-38 rather than 4.4.0-21 ...

Re: no autologin Mint 18 Cinnamon

I'm running Linux Mint 18 Sarah Cinnamon. The same problem appeared both times.. Cinnamon is not my forte but I recently installed it to test the lightdm situation. I quickly discovered that, unlike with MATE, lightdm was erratic and did not provide autologin with the instructions I previously prov...

Re: no autologin Mint 18 Cinnamon

I strongly advise not to do this. It didn't work first of all, same problem on 2nd boot. 2nd. It made the desktop very unstable. Choppy screen, flashing. Then it wouldn't shut down. I had to do a hard reset just to get her down. Took lightdm out of system. It works on 3 boxes here with varying hard...

After doing some further research, starting ubiquity with:

Code: Select all

sh -c 'ubiquity -b gtk_ui'&
seems to have resolved this issue.

Re: Mint 17.X and 18 Full Disk Encryption(dir./boot included)

I need to add something here. The reason why I did my install with LM 17.2 rather than LM 18 is because of a problem I encountered while attempting to install LM 18. Actually I also encountered that problem with LM 17.2 but your routine did complete and work with LM 17.2. I am wondering if I've miss...

I just stumbled upon your FDE (including boot) community pages this AM. I have been using FDE with unencrypted boot partition for several years now. Decided to give you tutorial a try with LM 17.2 and the MBR scenario. Following the steps given I had a successful install. Thanks very much for provid...

Re: Encrypting my Mint Cin 17.3 system

How you back up your info is totally your choice. Anything that backs up and restores in a normal linux installation should work. Once a luks/cryptsetup encrypted container is unlocked the enclosed installation/filesystem works as a normal installation.

Re: no autologin Mint 18 Cinnamon

We threw in the towel and went with a display manager that has auto login that works for us rather than one that doesn't. sudo apt-get install lightdm lightdm-gtk-greeter During installation select lightdm when asked to make a DM choice. After install: sudo xed /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf [SeatDefault...

Re: Why I am back on 17.3 for now...

LM18 is inheriting many of its woes from Ubuntu 16.04. Others are directly related to LM18. Add to that semi buggy kernels now in use and a lot of problems are surfacing for a lot of users. Many people are happy and say everything runs great. Many people are not happy because they have hardware that...

Re: no autologin Mint 18 Cinnamon

Installed LM18 MATE 64 to a Toshiba laptop. Auto login survived a number of reboots and shutdowns/restarts. No problem there. Unfortunately I ran into another problem though. Laptop restarts just fine but more often than not it freezes during a shutdown and I eventually have to cut the power. LM 17....

Re: no autologin Mint 18 Cinnamon

LM 18 MATE 64 As expected, everything remains the same. Auto login is a fail on this box and the irritating at-spi error message is frequent. I have resigned myself to using lightdm. Why not? This is an encrypted drive and the objective is auto login to prevent redundancy. It'll be a couple of days ...

I was checking through my mdm debug entrys in this AM's syslog and I noted something I did not spot previously. There are numerous lines concerning TimedLoginEnable and TimedLoginDelay. Oddly there are absolutely zero lines for AutomaticLogin or AutomaticLoginEnable. If there's nothing concerning it...

First one, it disappeared for several seconds and then a second instance appeared for several seconds. Since I did th...
