Does the mdm.conf code actually work for LMDE? I've just gotten the latest linuxmint-201204-mate-cinnamon-dvd-32bit installed, and so I followed the instructions...
And upon reboot, I still see the login prompt
Here's how my mdmsetup screen looks like:
I really can't figure out what's amissed. Tried switching to SLIM (which does allows me to get auto login configured), but it seems to cause other breakages with the optical drive not being able to mount, and the shutdown/restart options not showing on logout, so MDM is still the way to go (if I can get it to autologin!)
Any advice much appreciated
