Login screen ... bug ?

Postby kaizer on Thu Jul 14, 2011 12:36 pm

I tried earlier to change the login creen settings via the control center. Wanted to setup automatic login but I am not allowed to do the change. If I click the lock (click to make changes) ... nothing is happening. I guess this is a bug ...

Hi kaizer
the safest way I have found to set/unset auto login is to paste this in the terminal
Code: Select all
gksu gedit /etc/gdm3/daemon.conf

and underneath
[daemon]
Add the next lines:
Code: Select all
[daemon]
AutomaticLoginEnable=true
AutomaticLogin=username

where username is your name

To stop auto login just change the true to false

I can say the method given by ukbrian worked .. but I still think this is a bug as it should be possible to change this basic settings without going through the terminal

Well, it is a bug but I would say it won't be fixed simply because gdm3 is going to be updated from 2.30 to 3.0
3.0 doesn't even have that app to set the autologin (yet) and uses /etc/gdm3/daemon.conf so...
