    I Full Installed (not Frugal) 5.28.005 to my HDD of my 2007 Fujitsu Lifebook B6210. I want to boot to a password protected login screen or my already xlocked screensaver. How? Thanks.


    Tried getting help over at Puppy Linux Discussion Forum. No soap.

    Ok I found a relevant thread. But I've let my Linux skills fade terribly. I don't remember how to get to certain files. Feels like I've been brainwashed & all I remember is Windows. So I could use some help in baby steps please. It's step 2 I'm clueless about.

    If you want to keep your Puppy private, requiring a password at bootup, try this simple fix:
    1. Click on lock (xlock) to set up your password, if you haven't already
    2. Drag "xlock" from /usr/bin/ to ~/Startup. Choose "Link (absolute)" from the choices given in the pop-up menu.
