I have created a new user in Linux Mint 12 with these commands:
sudo useradd irene sudo passwd irene //Here I entered the password
But if I try to login with this user, the screen goes black for a couple of seconds and then I'm back at the login screen (no error appears). I know the password I enter is correct, because if I enter something else the "wrong password" shows up.
If you need more information or tell me what log files I should check, please tell me.
Here are the results for groups for the two existing users (mine, which is administrator, and the one for my girlfriend):
$ groups osdave osdave : osdave adm dialout cdrom plugdev lpadmin admin sambashare $ groups irene irene : irene
I'd say I have to add irene to a group, but which one? Also, login as irene (in console):
and moving to home, there is only one
osdave directory. Shall I create it myself?
