Hi,Just upgraded to 6.3 - from - 5.3 - great! I am a single user on my laptop - just for fun. Can I bypass the login screen, as I did in 5.3? This feature seems to no longer be available - ... [by jwilwert]
Hi. I'm trying to create an application to make a login screen launch at boot. This application will *(hopefully)* force users to login using an username and a password before they are able to use the home, back, menu and search buttons. So far, I have done *MOST* of the coding and as far as I can see, the login app works.
New install of 12.04.1 and the user established during install cannot login.
I was able to create an new user by entering the system as guest. Ubuntu accepted the sudo password of the first user to establish the new user; but I cannot login as the user established during install. The newly created user does have admin permission and I can login using that user and do sudo stuff.
T-Mobile instituted a hotspot plan in 2010, but many users were never charged because of technical limitations with the software. Recently T-Mo has been blocking users, after receiving Ice Cream Sandwich upgrades, and redirecting them to a sales page telling them that they can purchase the feature for an additional $14.95 per month.
This is certainly not game-changing or life-altering, but a question about Ubuntu has been nagging at me.
Why is it that when a user locks the screen (or the screen is locked due to inactivity), the machine doesn't simply go straight to the login screen. The little dialogue that is shown has nothing to offer that the login screen doesn't have.
