Re: Can't turn off autologin LM 13 cinnamon

I was hoping to find a solution after finding this topic.

Seems like we are both stuck with this predicament

MATE version also has the same problem

can't disable autologin on the liveCD

i'll be happy to just be able to enable screen saver with password prompt, even that is disabled
