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.
The problem I'm having is I don't have a gdm3 directory, much less the daemon.conf file.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:
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
Would I just create this file and directory or is this information not intended for my install?
