No screensaver with Peppermint.

You can install xscreensaver though if you wish.

Settings>>Software Manager

search for "xscreensaver"(no quotes).

I have one of these:

https://www.msi.com/Laptop/U100/Specification

It has 2gigs of ram and a SSD installed.  It runs P10(32bit) pretty well.  I wouldn't say it's "snappy", but it's not sluggish either.

Hello Alan, just wondering In the bios on the other machines did you have fast boot enabled? But then again you would of probably had booting problems anyway? It's just a thought though.  ;D

Not that I'm aware of.  I didn't mess with anything in the the bios other than the boot order.  USB #1, HDD#2.

I did another install on another machine(3 so far) and it automatically logs me to the desktop as requested.  So, of 3 machines only 1 doesn't log me in, very strange.  All 3 installs were done via the same USB drive image file.

Winnere, winner, chicken dinner.  Bingo.  It worked.  Thank you so much.  Hopefully it will stick after reboots and such.

Thanks.

Yes, I'm connected via ethernet now.  I tried the search, but I searched for WUSB6300.  I'll check out the thread you linked to.

Thanks again.  We'll see how it goes.

Thanks for the reply @spence.

Does the dongle need to be plugged in before running the lsusb command?  I'm new to Linux, so I need some hand holding.  :)

Trying to get this to work.  I've Googled and tried everything I could find, but most of the "solutions" were over 10 years old and don't seem to work today.  Any help would be appreciated.  I wasn't sure if I should post this here or in the network forum..it's here for now.

I just installed P10 on my netbook(MSI U100) after installing a new SSD and  It automatically logs into the desktop as requested during the install wizard.  I compared the lightdm files on both the problematic computer and the netbook and they're identical, so I have to assume that's not the problem.  This is weird.

11
I'm not sure if any of these tips are applicable, but found this page Googling:

https://www.addictivetips.com/ubuntu-linux-tips/enable-automatic-login-on-linux/

I'm not at the computer that has issues, so I can't try them at the moment.

Well,  I think I'm making some headway on this issue.  I can get it to not ask for the password when you boot up, but it still won't automatically log you in, you still have to hit the enter key when your account is on the main(first screen).

System>>Users and Groups



On the Password line select change(button)..I've already changed mine in the pic


Tick the bottom box where it says "Don't ask for password on login"



Ideally I want to turn the computer on and go(not even have to hit the enter key).

Try using Rufus to create the bootable thumb/usb drive.

Hello guys,

I just did an install of P10 and I had(have) the same issue.  I know I didn't select encrypt during install and I'm positive I chose to "Log in Automatically" when I was at that screen.  I'm re-installing to see if the 2nd install will do what it's supposed to do.  I'll report  my findings in another reply once this re-installation is complete.

I don't think "resolved" is appropriate if it hasn't been resolved.  Re-installing P9 really isn't a resolution.
