I changed the password in the admin functions, I restart the Laptop and when I want to log in I write the password and enter → the display turns black for one second and the field for password is almost clear When I make a wrong password the button shakes.

Best regards, Anne from germany

The screen shakes if the password is not O.k.

So it is almost sure that you don't type the good password. This might be a typo or you might not have the same keyboard setting (e.g., German vs. US English) in the Settings panel and in the Login screen.

  • Hello, make the steps with passwd {user_name} and set a new password. It didn´t work, when I write it in the box it shakes. The System said, that the new password is accepted
