    Mint 14 log on issue


    I installed Mint 14 OS and the system was unattended. When I returned It was at the log on screen. The problem is I did not set up a user and password and now it needs one. I have tried just pressing enter+enter and no luck. Any suggestions?
    Thanks,

    Hello and welcome!

    If you set a root password during the install, you should be able to login as root and create a user account with the useradd command:

    Linux Command Directory: useradd

    Don't recall if Mint uses this, but many distro's use root + root as the default install.
