I might be able to help you with this. Open a terminal and run
- Code: Select all
When the program opens go to the 'Security' tab and set autologin there.
One word of warning though. I did this myself and it was a complete waste of time because within 5 seconds of autologin I got a pop up window saying that my account was not unlocked during login and had to enter the password anyway. It also prevented one or more of my startup programs from starting so I ended up having to type my password twice, once into the pop up window and once into the startup program which is obviously useless so I went back to manual login. Maybe you aren't running the same startup programs as me, but if you use wireless internet I bet you will get that window anyway. Still it is up to you if you want to try.
As for the user not being selected at login there is a long topic about this somewhere although I can't find it at the moment. To save you the trouble of reading it I will give you a quick precis. You are by no means the only person who would like to have this feature, but to date, nobody has found a way to make it happen, which seems to suggest that it can't be done, at least not with mdm - you could always try switching to gdm or lightdm but neither of those worked properly for me so I am stuck with mdm and manual login for now.
