Installing Mint so that a new user can setup
I am selling a laptop to someone in my area and I'm going to wipe the HDD first. I am installing Linux Mint, but I'd like to have it setup to where the new user can enter their information on their own. Is there a way to do this relatively easily? I am not against using the command line if necessary.
What you are after is what is called an "OEM Disk". Check out the Mint download page for OEM installs:

I didn't even notice that Mint had OEM installs. That's just what I was looking for.Anonymous said:Is there a reason they can't just add themselves as a user? It's simple to do and you can default to that user on startup or select it if you prefer to not use the auto launch user option.
I don't know the person I'm selling it to, so it would be better to just use an OEM install and let the user enter all the information on their own.
