Re: Computer stopped accepting regular user login

Alright, that worked. Now I have my computer back. Thanks dolphin_oracle and thanks to everyone else that chimed in with their suggestions. I am not a big fan of using sudo so I would not have thought of trying that right off the bat. Yeah I was thinking that that /* at the end might be redundant si...

Re: Computer stopped accepting regular user login

That syntax doesn't seem to work. I wonder if I need change user and group separately.
I wonder if I did chown -R duane-duane:duane-duane /home/duane/* if that would work?
Does anyone know if that would work?

Re: Computer stopped accepting regular user login

My home partition has plenty of room, 49.64 GB unused according to Gparted. So it has to be permissions as far as I can tell. File manager shows duane directory is owned by root. I have no idea how this happened except I was testing a live usb just before this happened. How that changed permissions ...

Re: Computer stopped accepting regular user login

OK back to this now. In regard to Adrian's question.
In the root terminal I can do su duane and it changes from root back to duane.

SOLVED Computer stopped accepting regular user login

Out of the blue my main computer stopped accepting my logins this morning. I can still login as root fine. I suppose I could create a user named duane again but I would like to know what the problem was. I tried to grep for invalid user but I must not have the right file. Where would I find this? An...

Coca Cola Font

Did you know there is a web site where you can generate a font that looks like the Coca Cola font.
It is here: https://fontmeme.com/coca-cola-font/
I just did MX Linux in the font. It looks neat.
Not sure how to post the image here.
