automatic login

Postby glas on Tue Jan 09, 2007 12:10 pm

Hi all,

I have tested and continue to use a number of Linux-based operating systems and am very impressed with Mint - but I'm new to the Gnome window manager.

Does anyone no how to automate login to your home desktop (i.e. skip the need to type your username and password every time you boot up)?

Thankyou in anticipation of help in this regard.

Thanks 900i,

As with most things, simple when you know how, virtually impossible when you dont.
