Username and password for Mint 8 LXDE CE

Post by _HG_ »

I was about to try out the Mint 8 LXDE CE as a live CD.
It asks for a username and a password.
What is that username and password ?

hee hee... I saw that as well in my test of it...

I don't remember, but it was either "user" or "mint" for both username and password!

Hope you have fun with Mint LXDE

God Bless

It's unusual that you're being asked for a username and a password, but the username is "mint" and there is no password.

Not working.
I have tried:

usr: pwd:
mint (none)
mint mint
mint user
user mint
user user
user (none)

It is not working.

Did you check the md5sum of the iso you downloaded? The live CD should not require a login and it's likely that you have a corrupt iso or a bad burn.

Yes, the MD5SUM is correct.
