Install ubuntu mate 22.04 on a Lenovo laptop

During the 22.04 installation on my Lenovo laptop I have created an user account.
But it does not appear when I boot my machine (only the guest account appears).
A technical information concerning the BIOS : I have choosen the LEGACY mode ( not the UEFI mode).
Thanks a lot for your help.

Maybe your iso is corrupt. If you were on gnome, you could choose not listed, and then sign into your account. It is extremely possible that your install went kaput.

Thanks for the help.
I restarted the installation with a new iso image. The issue is unfortunately unchanged.
My guest-rights are insufficient to read the log files ( /var/log )
Moreover I don't know the guest-passwd.

Hallo ramix

You may wish to try this:

  • Log in to the "Guest" session.
  • Then press "CTRL" + "Alt" + "F5" - this will drop you down to a terminal.
  • enter "su your-user-name" - this should allow you to login in the shell as the user you defined during the install process.
  • enter "whoami" - this should return the name of your own user account
  • enter "id" - this will return your user ID, group ID, and all your groups.

Note, your uid should be 1000 or greater. Most Linux distros will not show a login option for accounts with a uid less than 1000.

You can leave this terminal by entering "reboot" or by pressing "CTRL" + "Alt" + "F7" - this will return you to the guest account GUI.

If you do this could you please let us know if your uid is less than 1000?

I have followed all your advice.

Output of id command :
uid=1000(rpm) gid=1000(rpm) groupes=1000(rpm),4(adm),24(cdrom),27(sudo),30(dip),46(plugdev),121(lpadmin),135(lxd),136(sambashare)

Now I can login normally ( user : rpm )
You can see the beautiful result :
A great thank you

Bonsoir ramix
