Login screen (SOLVED)
« on: June 23, 2019, 10:19:53 pm »
Hello all. I am on my HP Touchsmart M6 which is running Peppermint 9. The kernel is 4.15.0.15-generic x86_64

Anyway, I decided to hide the list of users on the login screen via the "Login Screen" item in the Menu. Like I have done in the past, but then I did it from the CLI. 

Now I can't really login as my user. I tried typing my own password unprompted but I still got the guest session.

I was able to drop to a shell and login as my user and install xinit to start X from there.

I have my Desktop up and running from the startx command, with the Terminal window open.

But that's pretty much all I can do besides opening applications from the Terminal.

Any help to get my fully equipped desktop back would be great.

Regards

What exactly did you do in the CLI ?

And what's the output from:
Code: [Select]
cat /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf

I should not have mentioned that here. I meant that you gave me good code to do what I was trying to do here

I didn't do anything with it on this issue or it probably would have worked as intended.

The requested output.
cat /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf
Code: [Select]
[Seat:*]
allow-guest=true
greeter-hide-users=true
I would like to keep the guest AND keep my own user unlisted.

I found it. I was not sure of being able to find it via TapTalk or over my cellar Tether. But I just found it.

Regards.

Taptalk won't let me edit the title.
