Hi,

just installed linux mint 20, and every time i get to enter my password two times, i dont know why the OS is prompting me twice, i looked over the internet but could not find anyting useful. Output of dpkg iss following

Code: Select all

dpkg --list lightdm* *greeter* | grep "^ii"
ii  lightdm                              1.30.0-0ubuntu3.1 amd64        Display Manager
ii  lightdm-settings                     1.4.2             all          LightDM configuration tool
ii  slick-greeter                        1.4.1+ulyana      amd64        Slick-looking LightDM greeter
So there is no other greeter. Idk what else to do. Any ideas? Or a link to a similar problem would be helpful as i could not find any :(.

Regards,
Ossian

Sorry, but you need to post an appropriate query in a help section of the forum. This is a poll thread in the chat section, not the help section.

First of all:
- A new question deserves a new topic. That's a rule we have here. So yes, it's related, but that's not a good reason to post your question on it. Thank you for starting a new topic.
Secondly:
- A topic in the chat area is not the best spot to get support anyway. Many members don't look there.
Finally:
- Your new topic is now here, because the chat area was still not the best spot to get support, even in a new topic.

You could do worse* than to read How to get help. There's a reason it's posted in red at the top of every page outside the Chat area.

*For example, by not reading it. That would definitely be worse.

I went to do a fresh install of 20 to (hopefully) solve my cinnamon crashing bug I had with 19.3 (after 4.13 kernel upgrade) - not GPU hardware problem as same thing occurred with intel onboard as with the R7 240 GPU. Normally I just make a USB stick using Universal USB installer but this produced a stick that got as far as Grub but then failed with a file not found. Rather than mess around I just created another USB stick with Yumi and the installation went smoothly.
Unfortunately the crashing bug is still there so managed to install Mate before cinnamon crashed again and switch desktop environments. All is now fine and whilst not as pretty as it was before seems to be working well (though this was late last night so haven't got everything up and running how I like it).

My only issues with LM 20 is it still hasn't deposited several million dollars in my bank account, nor has it cured my male pattern baldness. So, I'm really pissed of with the developers for those obvious and glaring bugs.

I did a clean install of Mint 20 Xfce and almost everything worked fine - updates, install wine, wifi, etc. The one glitch was thunar would be running at startup, and exo-open was funky (I changed the launchers to not use it).

Really nice one, on the same note I am unhappy because LM 20 doesn't do the dishes ,wipe and sweep the floor.

I'm glad I'm not the only one upset. There are some potholes in the street by my house. Clem should have fixed 'em by now :-)

If it's help you're looking for, you need to open a thread in an appropriate area of the forum.

I set up a brand new PC as dual boot - Linux 20 Cinnamon and Windows 10. This is part of my ongoing process to wean myself off Microsoft and Google products.

Hardware:
Intel i7-10700k CPU
MSI MPG Gaming Carbon WiFi motherboard
2 1TB Intel 665p M.2 nVMe solid state drives - 1 each for Windows 10 and Mint
6TB Seagate hard drive to be shared as data drive by Windows 10 and Mint

Installed Windows 10 first on 1 nVMe drive.
Installed Mint 20 Cinnamon on the other nVMe drive. Partitioned 100GB for root some for swap space and the rest for user.

Install went flawlessly, except I couldn't get the grub to work properly. When I rebooted the machine it would go directly into Windows unless I held down the F11 key every time.

I discovered that the efibootmgr had the order of linux and windows 10 reversed (0000 being windows and 0003 being Mint). I fixed it by the following command:

$ sudo efibootmgr -o 0003,0000

Once that was done, reboots now directly into the grub menu where I can choose between Mint (default) and Windows 10.

Just loaded TexStudio and slowly beginning to load key applications as needed.

I have done three installs of:
Release Linux Mint 20 Ulyana 64-bit (based on based on Ubuntu 20.04 "Focal Fossa")
MATE 1.24.0
on Oracle Virtualbox with very few problems or difficulties encountered.

I use a file server based on Linux Mint 19.x with Samba file shares. I was pleasantly surprised to find I only needed to instal samba (sudo apt-get install samba) to access those shares. However I can also confirm that Nautilus-Share does NOT work on the new images. I will acknowledge that I did not bother trying to configure samba or expend any other effort to troubleshoot the problem other than immediate removal.
