First time Linux user. Treat me like a complete idiot.
Installed Manjaro on VMWare. I'm required to get into this whole Linux thing for college. First problem:
- Created user account from root. (useradd test)
- Gave 'test' a password. (passwd test, password, password, >confirmed)
- Attempt to log in.
Manjaro looks like it's logging in. The screen flashes black. Then all of a sudden I'm back in the user login screen. This isn't right.
I do not have this issue with the root account. But for the purposes of my course, I do not want to be logged into the root account. It's not good practice either.
