Hi every one from France.

I'm new in linux installation and i choose Linux Lite 4.8 to reactivate an old computer of mine for my daughter.

It's not as fast as i expected, but with my poor computer, it does the job even better than $soft, and it's a ready to use system very simple to activate.

Very simple until i try to create a standard user for my daugther.

My first problem is with the graphical interface Lite User Manager.
When i try to add a new user, nothing append.
The new user doesn't appear in the list of existing users.

When i go to the terminal Xfce, i can see that the directory corresponding to the user is created, but it contains only Templates directory.

If i compare with my user directory, it contains several directories as
Bureau   Documents  Modèles  Public           Vidéos
Desktop  Images     Musique  Téléchargements

Did i notice that i'm french???  ;)

Even if i restart the computer, it doesn't change anything.

After that i try create a new user with command line, with a better result because i can see it in the list, check right to log in without password, but when i restart and try to log in with this user, i'm stuck with a login loop.

I try this solution
How to Fix the Ubuntu Login Loop

but when i check the permissions of Xauthority, it tell's me that such a file or directory doesn't exist.

Did i miss anything in creation of a new user?
Is there anystep i have to do to check creation?

I'm not very familiar with linux ecosystem, so if you have some advice, it'll be kind of you to include command line or detailed manipulation.

Thank's for your help.

And sorry for my poor english...  ::)
