    At present I have two computers running remote desktop application NoMachine. Coincidentally, the computers are connected for file sharing with Samba; they, in turn, are connected to two other computers, also using Samba. While I cannot login to the computer (which I was viewing from my main computer), the other computers can see and access folders and files on it. Here’s what happened: I rebooted the computer I was viewing while I was viewing it for the first time with NoMachine. (Apparently, that should not be done.) Just prior to this, I had added a Samba user for file transfer purposes; so a second person could backup files on the computer in question. Now that username and name show up (as separate boxes) along with my own and a couple of other options, including Samba guest account. I have never seen this screen before. And the Mint 19.3 computer in question was set to auto login, which it previously did. I have unplugged and restarted it, to no avail.


    Are you using home sharing with samba? If yes, can you verify isn’t it similar problem It doesn’t sound it could be related to NoMachine. Please verify if it’s possible to connect to that machine over terminal – via ssh and if home directory of the affected user have correct ownership or if it’s shared at all.
