Good day all.
I'm brand new to both Linux and Mint, having just installed on my HP EliteBook the latest version. I'm coming over from Windows 7 Professional.
So far things are going well...but, I am mystified by a behavior that is akin to Windows' User Access Control (UAC), and which I presume is a security feature.
I'd like to explain this, but just know in advance that I will probably not use the appropriate terms, so forgive that in advance.
I am a long-time user of VPN services. Part of that involves the installation and use of a VPN client on my laptop. This client is currently installed and functioning properly, other than it's not starting when I login as I wish it to. I have placed a check in the box for that purpose, and still it does not come up. My best guess at this point for this situation is that LM is requiring my password, as it seems to do for quite a few actions I undertake, even though LM does not present me the opportunity to enter my password to start the VPN client. After searches of various other forums as well as the LM installation itself, I am unable to locate a "how-to" for how to avoid being prompted for my password so much.
I do NOT want to remove the password (although I would like to change it at some point). Rather, I would like to have LM ask me just the one time when I login and at no other times...OR, failing that, simply know where that setting is located so that I can dis/enable it as I see fit.
Is it just very simple and I've missed?
Thank you for your help.
