What is the password for the live-cd?

Post by simpleblue »

When users try the cd they'll have to log out and back in to try MATE and other desktops. I wanted to do this but I don't know the user or the password to enter.

The user should be "mint" and no password (just press enter). Don't know if Mate works from the live DVD...

You should note that Linux Mint 12 RC has a bug that makes it impossible to switch to MATE from the login window.
