Debian 7:

Inside /etc/pam.d/webmin

The line
@include common-session
should be changed to
@include common-session-noninteractive

For this error in /var/log/auth.log to be fixed:

perl[6619]: pam_ck_connector(webmin:session): cannot determine display-device

    The catch here is that some older Debian / Ubuntu versions don't have a /etc/pam.d/common-session-noninteractive file. Since Webmin supplies a single .deb for all Debian releases, this would fail to install properly on those old releases.

    Is possible to make an if/else statement during installation for those old releases? :)

    Does this cause any problems other than that "cannot determine display-device" log message?

    Not really.

    If you are not willing to fix it by checking the installation environment you could add a new question here: webmin.com/faq.html :D

    Thanks :)
