I just installed the latest ISO with Mate DE on my secondary computer and despite me checking Auto log-in Endeavour always asks for my password when I boot up. Even after re-downloading and re-installing no joy.
Something wrong with my ISO or was it an oversight by your Mate team?
For all the rest I’m too much of a spazz, or too blind to even find all the lines they tell me to edit in the ArchWiki. See, I’m using Mate since 2013 and only today found out that I don’t have Leafpad but Pluma … and what it is and does. Guess this was the first time ever I had to use it.
Unfortunately unrelated. They said they can’t even login with the correct password. But since my good gamer is in repair I’m on a mini Lenovo desktop without Nvidia and all is fine. It’s my stupid Acer mini laptop also on Intel HD graphix, on which I installed the latest version 2020.07.15, that asks for my pword every time I switch it on. :o
Didn’t work. I guess it can’t work since my laptop doesn’t know that it’s me when I boot it. All my distros and even Endeavour, up to this ISO, have always done it perfectly. Particularly when I specified right during install that it should boot up without password.
Sorry for being such a pita but for me such stuff is important. Only hubby and me are using our computers, and we trust each other. In airports and restaurants I unpack the lappy, do my stuff on it and pack it away again. No danger of strangers ever logging in.
When I or my husband or just about anyone switches the computer on in the morning it boots up without a password. That’s how all my computers work. I guess I’m the only registered user but my computers think it’s always me. And that is what I want. And with 2020.07.15 it doesn’t work anymore.
