Advanced Topics / Peppermint 5 auto login (Solved)
« on: October 28, 2014, 06:09:59 am »
How do I get Peppermint 5 to automatically login with a specific user. I am setting up 2 dozen netbooks for use by elementary school classes and dealing with 2 dozen students trying to log in is way too much hassle. All the info I find says to edit /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf but that file does not exist in Peppermint 5. The latest info I find on lubunto says to go in to /usr/share/lightdm/lightdm.conf.d/ but that directory contains the following files:
50-greeter-wrapper.conf
50-guest-wrapper.conf
50-xserver-command.conf
60-lightdm-gtk-greeter.conf
and none of these contain any login entries.

Advanced Topics / Modify menu categories

I am setting up Peppermint 4 to use on 2 dozen netbooks in an elementary school computer lab. Almost finished the setup and found the Preferences category has disappeared from the main menu. I've researched on the web which says the menu layout is contained in /etc/xdg/menus/lxde-applications.menu and /etc/xdg/Peppermint/menus/lxde-applications.menu. Both these files exist but they do not come close to matching with the menu that actually apears. I would like to be able to correct whatever happened in the first place rather than go through the complete throes of reinstalling and doing all the customizations and modifications we want in order to put these machines into the hands of a great number of 'creative' youngsters working under teachers who know nothing about computers in general, much less Linux.
