Mint 20.0 Mate Login issue

Post by oscarTheGrouch »

Just upgraded to MATE 20.0 from 18.3
Noticed little issue with login screen when I have more than one account.
When trying to login as same user as last login, there is no text box for the password.
I have to click on another user, then back to mine to get a text box.
Tried to attach pictures from my phone, but they are too large

If you mean that you tried a direct LM 18.3 -> LM 20 upgrade (i.e., without any intermediate LM 19.3 stage) so few issues might be regarded as quite a fortunate outcome. That is not a supported upgrade route AFAIK. The blog announcement states quite specifically that "it is now possible to upgrade the 64-bit version of Linux Mint 19.3 to version 20" and the instructions are equally explicit and clear that "to upgrade to Linux Mint 20 you need to run the 64-bit version of Linux Mint 19.3".

Sorry for the confusion, when I said "upgrade" I meant a complete install.
