I don't normally install the packaged versions. Here is what I just did: $ sudo apt-get update $ sudo apt-get install zope2.8 $ sudo apt-get install plone2.1 This fails: "Couldn't find package plone2.1" $ sudo apt-get install plone-site which wants a lot of zope2.7 packages installed. I don't know how you were able to install plone2.1 via synaptic. Here is something else to try: $ sudo /var/lib/zope2.8/plone-site/bin/zopectl zope> adduser admin 123 zope> restart You should then be able to log in as 'admin' with password '123'.
