I have created a new user in Mint 12, with this 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 info or tell me what log files I should check, please tell me.
Thank you for reading.
edit: adding info
here are the results for groups for the 2 existing users (mine, which is administrator, and the one for my gf):
$ 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 1
osdave directory: shall I create it myself?
