Problem Cannot login to TrueOs after install as Guest in VirtualBox

#1
Cannot login to TrueOs after install as Guest in VirtualBox
I've installed (twice) this, TrueOS-Desktop-2016-12-27-x64-DVD.iso into VirtualBox running on a Windows 10 Host.
Once the trueos boots up, the login prompt only reports an invalid username/password combination.
The accounts are find, as I can drop to a command line prompt to check them.
Clearly something is wrong with the password authentication process in the PCDM login page.

Any ideas how to fix?
Thx

don't have a direct answer for you. You may want to head over to https://discourse.trueos.org ans search that site and ask over there.

The devs hangout there, and a more active user base

I remember another member had the same problem, with an earlier image. His username wasn't accepted, but his full name was... Can you try using your display name in the username box instead of your username?

You have to be careful because the Windows10 don't like other distros and third party security apps! For me everytime causing install and mounting problems (for installed and also for live distros). And I think I'm not alone with this. Sad

Yeah the whole SecureBoot thing is nonsense. I disable it, everytime I see it. They sold it as "you can't get boot viruses anymore, because your boot drive is locked down."
In all reality, you can't put anything that Microsoft doesn't approve of on that machine, I have had 3 machines; I had to disable "SecureBoot" on and it has always been a pain in the butt to do. But viruses still abound and the SecureBoot solution doesn't seem to be doing anything about it. Other than preventing the novice from learning a new O.S.

Click the United States icon, check that the keyboard layout is as required.

Would have been nice if he let us know, but oh well...

It wasn't intended as a dig … I sometimes forget to cross-reference Smile

Most pleasing is that the issue was reported (thanks, jradxl), which led to a fix.

Most displeasing, is a$$holes that don't come back and tell yo that, the fix you suggested actually worked, so you are left in the dark, and are unable to guide the next guy with the same problem. What's even more aggravating is even bigger d!cks promoting and even congratulating this type of behavior.
