Re: User authorisation in Raspbian

it doesn't prompt for a password … when using the sudo command at the terminal By default the pi user is set up to require no password when running sudo. You can change that by running… sudo visudo … and commenting out this line … pi ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: ALL The reason you weren't finding any info o...

Yes. Edit the display manager configuration with "sudo nano /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf". Find the line "autologin-user=pi" and comment it out by adding a # at the beginning.
Thank you, this has now worked! :D

LXDE does have an authentication screen - it is displayed when you logout. But thanks anyway! :)

Re: User authorization in Raspbian

I don't know how or if it can be done but if you are going to go through all the trouble to have it prompt for a user & password then how much harder to type startx after logging in? Might as well turn off auto start...... That is what I have currently resorted to, but surely there is an easier way...

Email client, anyone?

Hello,

Can anyone suggest to me a simple email client with a GUI for use on the Pi, and how to set it up?

Thanks! :-)

Re: User authorisation in Raspbian

When running Raspbian for the first time it boots into the configuration menu (raspi-config) this is to setup the various things like keyboard language and expanding the root partition to use your entire card rather than the default 2GB. After a reboot it will prompt you for a username / password (...

User authorization in Raspbian

Hello, I have just installed the Raspbian distro after having problems with Win32 DiskImager ( see http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?p=229766 ), and am now using it fine. However, there are two questions I have about security on the Pi. One, I have noticed that by default the Pi boots ...

Re: Cannot write .img to reader for 4GB SDHC in Win32 DiskIm

Hi CB4 - sorry to even have to suggest this, but is it possible that the sliding 'lock' switch on the card has somehow moved to the 'locked' position since you did your various operations on the card in Windows? Working in Windows, try reformatting the card: With the card in the reader and the read...

XP+SP3? Vista+SP2? Windows 7? or Windows 8?

Is it 32Bit or 64Bit?
Sorry about long time replying - getting a lot of spam users on my social network! :( Win7 32bit is the OS.

Re: Cannot write .img to reader for 4GB SDHC in Win32 DiskIm

Yes, Win32DiskImager seems to be fussy about SD Card adapters. Some work and some don't. In Win32DiskImager, after you select the source Image file using the Browse button, then click on the destination drive button at the RHS of the panel, it should give you a choice of any available drives to wri...

Re: Cannot write .img to reader for 4GB SDHC in Win32 DiskIm

Cyborg4, You should take Redhawk's advice and try a different SD Card to USB adapter. Many Laptops have SD Card slots which work when reading and writing using Windows Explorer but are NOT recognised by Win32DiskImager. I use MicroSD cards and find that a SD Card to USB adapter plugged into a USB s...

Re: Cannot write .img to reader for 4GB SDHC in Win32 DiskIm

If you cannot flash a 4GB+ SD card don't blame the software it's usually non-compliant SDHC card readers that are the problem. A simple solution would be to upgrade your SD card reader like the ones sold in Poundland. Richard S. My card reader works fine! I can still transfer files to and from the ...
