Are you talking about accounts? I am using Linux Mint 17.3 Cinnamon right now and I don't see any profiles, but I do have at least the one account. Where do you see your profile settings?

OK. I just looked through all of my settings and I see that I have one account but I can't find any profiles. Where do you see the profiles?

I am afraid I do not remember, I was wandering around on my own [probably where I should not have been] lol

It was in a sub menu of something else IIRC.

 

Gotta go for a bit.

Multiple profiles? never seen this in mint.

Are you basing this off what you found in the /home directory?

You might have two separate accounts on your computer. I will tell you the truth, I only have one account. I think that maybe when you installed your Linux Mint you may have created two accounts by accident, but I will defer any real answer to the folks here who are much more Linux knowledgeable than I am.

 

 

I'm glad you are feeling well enough to play around with your Linux Mint. I think that everything that you are doing is just a fun learning experience and it really does not hurt to come on here and ask questions about anything that you do not understand.

Well either I dreamed this or I had a complete sycotic break with reality.

I went thru the whole menu and opened everything one at a time just looking.  Even I can not find it again.lol

I thought it was associated with my personal preferences, but no joy.

If I remember correctly, during install, there's only one user created.

 

After poking around a bit, there is a way under Administration to add additional users (guest accounts, etc), but this would be something done after installation. 

 

If it was a psychotic break, don't worry!  Sometimes they can be fun! :crazy: :P :lol: (kidding)

I don't have an answer right now, but seem to remember something about this.  It is where a person/user can have multiple profiles with different Desktops but have never experimented with it.  Like one for work, or the desktop you do certain tasks with, you get the point.

The closest thing I found [profile] was you can create profiles for terminal windows, but I had nothing listed. Besides I have seldom used terminal.

 

Guess it is not really important.  I was just surprised to see it and was curious.
