  • Linux Lite: 3.2 64bit
I have been using Linuxlite for a few years now and am currently using 4.0. I installed it last fall and haven't had any issues with it. Until today. This morning I shut down my computer normally, but when I turned it back on this evening, it asked me to login on startup; I had it set to log me in automatically, so I thought this was weird. But then it wouldn't accept my password. I made sure caps and numlock weren't on but it still won't let me in. I haven't done anything unusual lately or noticed any strange behavior until this happened. Can someone tell me what is going on? Have I been hacked? What can I do to get back into my computer?

Why are you trying to login to root user it is locked by default. Try to log in to your user which is not root. your account should be in the dropdown select your own account and then use the password you have.
