[SOLVED] passwords

Post by Charles_NL » Thu Jun 21, 2018 12:56 pm

Dear forum members,

Normally Linux Mint automatically starts up, I have set it up as such. But sometimes he does not and I do not understand why. In that case, I give the username password to login. So far so good.
However, after a restart, a password is sometimes requested. Only .... the login screen looks completely different, it's a small popup screen, and the username entered password does not accept it.
Someone possibly familiar with this and hopefully also know how to solve this?

My message for this board i've translated it.
No answer in the dutch language section.

Can you post a picture of the small popup screen?

Hi, Charles_NL.

<ctrl><alt><bksp> does not trigger a reboot. It only terminates the graphical desktop (xfce) and all running user applications and returns you to the login screen.
And this is what can be spotted in your photograph, the login screen.

And as can also be spotted: The loginname is displayed on top. so you do not enter it. Instead the edit box requests the "password". So you enter the password only and press enter.

Regards,
Karl

That's the usual screen called the Login Screen. I see that everyday to when I start Mint and log in.

What screen have you been seeing when it accepts the username and password?

Thanks for your answers.
The problem is solved. After restarting, the num lock was disabled. Result of this a incorrect password input.
