Automatically select user on login?

Postby Rua » Wed May 23, 2012 2:36 pm

In Mint 11 when my computer asked me to log in, the sequence was just... press enter to select the user that was already highlighted (me) and then type the password. In Mint 13, I have to type in the user name as well. Is there a way to get the old behaviour back?

Not entirely, but you can add a list of users to select from. Open the Login Window application, go to the Local tab, and change Style to "Plain with face browser". This will list the available user accounts on your system in the login window, though you still have to either select one of those users or type your username. You can configure other things about the login window here as well.
