gdmsetup not working

Postby nitrofurano on Mon Feb 28, 2011 3:00 pm

I installed Linux Mint (Debian) 201012 (the 201101 live-cd didn't work) on a Macbook 2,1
After installing, i didn't have the login automatically for the default account i created (named 'guest')
So i tried to choose 'Login Window' from system:administration, as well i tried to run it from the terminal, with 'sudo gdmsetup'
The problem is i can't edit its dialog for change anything there - everything appears as grey.
From terminal i have:

macbook_mint1 guest # sudo gdmsetup
** (gdmsetup:2404): DEBUG: init delay=30
** (gdmsetup:2404): DEBUG: GdmUserManager: scheduling a passwd file update
** (gdmsetup:2404): DEBUG: Failed to identify the current session: Unable to lookup session information for process '2404'
** (gdmsetup:2404): DEBUG: GdmUserManager: reloading passwd file worker
** (gdmsetup:2404): DEBUG: GdmUserManager: include_all is FALSE
** (gdmsetup:2404): DEBUG: GdmUserManager: done reloading passwd file
** (gdmsetup:2404): DEBUG: init user='' auto=False

What can i do to fix it, or which config file can i edit with Gedit, Nano, or any txt editor alike, for enabling the 'Log in as guest automatically'?
Thanks in advance

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

I'm not sure, but I've moved this to the Editions ‹ LMDE (Linux Mint Debian) subforum in case someone has a better idea.
