    I’ve tried the command lines for Google Authenticator recently (Linux Mint 19.1) and found they do not work. upon entering I receive ‘command not found‘ which stands to reason when the OP was in 2013. I can create a pam file but it does not ‘trigger’ a response on boot…. i.e. no requirement for a password other than the one I created on install.
