Finally made the switch from Win 7 to Mate 18.04.
Linux L-Mate 5.3.0-46-generic #38~18.04.1-Ubuntu SMP Tue Mar 31 04:17:56 UTC 2020 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
So, long time Windows user, NOOB Linux user.
Haven't found a more appropriate thread to ask this question in so please suggest a better one if this one is not it.
Recently installed Mate 18.04 and shortly after, installed Virt-manager. I did get it working but somewhere along the way I did something (keystroke combination or installed something I shouldn't have) and now at my login screen I have an account for "libvirt qemu". I've read some threads here that seem to suggest a fix.
but honestly, as a NOOB Linux user it was not very clear what I needed to do. I believe the answer lies within that post but not sure exactly where. So I figured I should ask the Mate community to get clarity on how to proceed.
Saw in the other post that this would be helpful
-Mate:~$ grep libvirt-qemu /etc/passwd
Is it just a matter of changing 64055 to 125? I'm competent enough to edit the file in nano but need to know specifically which file it is.
Or do I need to follow the steps outlined here (again not very clear)
Would prefer not to have to re-install.
Appreciate the help.
