password login disappeared
« on: July 04, 2018, 02:51:10 am »
hi all,

I just installed Sparky 5.4 Home edition with LXqt for my wife's old Toshiba laptop.

While it runs smooth and perfectly, when the screensaver kicks in and locks the desktop, the login window to unlock won't accept the password even though the password is correct. So I removed the xscreensaver to disable the screensaver itself, now I have noticed the system doesn't even ask login with password at the start up.
I would like to have password login but I don't know where I can configure about this.

Can anybody help?

Hi
Show me your /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf file please.

ok, you gave me hint. I found

autologin-user=

had been set. Now I commented out so it asks password now.

I don't know about the screensaver though. How come I couldn't login with correct password?
