Auto login?

Auto login?

Postby schwim on Sun Sep 23, 2012 10:29 am

Hi there everyone,

I've read that the LMDE auto login control is broken, but I found this page which instructed on how to set it up by editing /etc/gdm3/daemon.conf.

Although LMDE has a graphical tool for setting the login screen and auto login, it does not work. However, there is a way to set auto login. Follow these steps:

Open the command launcher with Alt + F2 keys
In it, paste the following command:

gksu gedit /etc/gdm3/daemon.conf
Below the line [daemon] insert these two lines:



AutomaticLoginEnable=true
AutomaticLogin=username

where 'username' is your name
Save and close Gedit
Reboot the system

To remove the autologin, just reopen the file as described and change true to false


The problem I'm having is I don't have a gdm3 directory, much less the daemon.conf file.

Would I just create this file and directory or is this information not intended for my install?

If you are running mdm you change:

AutomaticLoginEnable=true

AutomaticLogin=username

in /etc/mdm/mdm.conf
