Automatic Login & Last Session not working

Automatic Login & Last Session not working

Postby grobi on Tue Jan 08, 2013 3:24 pm

Hello,

I recently installed Cinnamon + MDM on my Ubuntu 12.10.

For now this setup behaves fine except of the auto login feature. For my understanding, this should skip the user name prompt on login screen. But it does not. I still need to enter my login name before it comes to enter the password.

Apart from this mdm starts an ubuntu session by default. I need to choose "Cinnamon" manually from the session list to start it.

Any ideas why these things aren't working properly on my system?

Code: Select all
mgrobelin@wopr ~ $ grep -v \# /etc/mdm/mdm.conf | grep -v '^$'
[daemon]
AutomaticLogin=mgrobelin
DefaultSession=cinnamon.desktop
AutomaticLoginEnable=true
[security]
RelaxPermissions=0
CheckDirOwner=false
[xdmcp]
[gui]
AllowGtkThemeChange=false
[greeter]
GraphicalTheme=linuxmint
ChooserButton=false
ConfigAvailable=false
SystemMenu=false
SoundOnLogin=false
[chooser]
[debug]
[servers]

mgrobelin@wopr ~ $ /usr/sbin/mdm --version
MDM 1.0.8

mgrobelin@wopr ~ $ /usr/bin/cinnamon --version
Cinnamon 1.6.7

For automatic login you may need to enable following things....

First in "Users Account" app you must enable automatic login for selected user..
Secondly you must enable Automatic Login Under Security Tab of mdmsetup i.e. $sudo mdmsetup -> Enter Your Password -> Security Tab -> Enable Automatic Login checkbox for selected user....
