Yeah, mine was for 3 Plus. The distro configurators may have fixed it by now.

Re: Lost Admin Access on Desktop

Raspbian Lite is Raspbian. It has no DE and no DM, but it is still Raspbian. That's why they give it that name. In any case, it appears that there is some hidden configuration that the full Raspbian install sets up, but Raspbian Lite does not include. That should be written down somewhere. No one wa...

Re: Lost Admin Access on Desktop

Is that the way that Raspbian is supposed to work? I hadn't had that problem before. Shouldn't Pi be added to some group to make desktop apps work without root access?

Lost Admin Access on Desktop

Have Raspberry Pi Model 3 Plus. Installed latest Raspbian Lite, then installed Xfce 4.12. Got to desktop and installed some apps, but when I try to access anything requiring admin access the password does not work. It will not work in things like Synaptic or Users and Groups from gnome-system-tools....

Authentication Failure

I have just run into a strange problem. It turns out that when I attempt to start Synaptic, and it requests authentication, the password is no longer recognized. It was before. The only thing I did recently was to change the pi password to something more secure. There was no problem with the change ...

Inconsistent and Odd Behavior

I am seeing some odd behavior and some inconsistencies when working with the latest Raspbian Lite on a Raspberry PI Model 3 B+, revision 1.3. During boot I see that the system keeps resizing the file system. But if I go into raspi-config, it still does it there. When I install Xfce4, it fails to bri...

Re: Network Utility

While I find your comments interesting, the basic idea has been "distro", meaning distribution, as you know. So Raspbian is a distro. Within that distro are different versions or variants as you may wish to call it. Of course, one can say that the number changes in Debian are the versions, and that ...

I am totally aware that your response was to my question. I did indeed accept it as such.

Your assumption regarding @neilgl's assumptions may or may not be correct. There is no way to know from his comment.
