    Login and Password to run Xubuntu 14.04/trusty before installing?

    I searched, and could not find an answer to what should be obvious, but...

    Today, I DL'd the Xubuntu version of trusty-desktop-i386.iso from

    here: http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/xubuntu/da...sktop-i386.iso

    I was able to get it on a 4GB USB thumb drive, using Unetbootin, and it boots OK to my little ASUS EEE PC901. But when I choose "Try Xubuntu w/o Installing', it asks for a name and password.

    Do I need to sign up as a tester to get a password? I didn't see anything about this. Or is my install hosed? MD5SUM was good on the downloaded iso.

    TIA -NTL2009

    Geez, ten seconds later I found it! I can mark my own thread solved! This might help someone else. (Why don't they put this in the notes?)

    For Xubuntu, the username seems to be "xubuntu", no password.

    It's not in the notes - because it's a bug - it's not setting the session properly.

    Ahh, I see. I saw some older references to it, so I thought maybe it was reported as a bug recently, but something that was actually intended.

    So I guess it is an old bug that crept in again. Probably just a set-up error when they build it?
