I'm trying to get a standard user on my laptop installed with Linux Mint 17.3 on the wireless. I can get to the internet just fine logged in with an administrator but as soon as i log in with a standard user it asks to unlock a system setting then asks for the password for the wireless again despite my having saved it. Since anyone that uses this laptop besides me will be using the standard account, they won't have any passwords this makes it unusable for any purposes that require an internet connection.
Relevant attempts to fix: 1.Adding the standard user to the netdev group - no change 2.Adding a new/second admin account - no change 3.Looked up a tutorial on the Linux Mint site titled "Connect to a wireless network as standard user without administrator authentication" - this page was completely blank
Note: It is definitely not a hardware issue.
