Auto Login

I am struggling to get autologin to work.

I have tried changing /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf as described in other posts here and in the lightdm wiki,

[Seat:*]
autologin-user=jp
autologin-user-timeout=0

Running Debian 10 with Xfce4, freshly installed from the Debian repo.

Thanks,
JP.

Re: Auto Login

Well I finally stumbled my way through this.  I noticed that every change I made to the lightdm files had absolutely no effect.  So then I suspected that lightdm is not being used.  In fact GDM3  is being used.

So I changed /etc/gdm3/daemon.conf to

# Enabling automatic login
AutomaticLoginEnable = true
AutomaticLogin = jp

and bingo.

Re: Auto Login

had the same problem once.

An alternative to your solution, what's helped me once was creating a file /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf and adding the following content:

[SeatDefaults]
autologin-user=<YOUR USER>
autologin-user-timeout=0
user-session=ubuntu
# Uncomment the following, if running Unity
#greeter-session=unity-greeter

also thank you for reminding me of lightdm. I tend to forget about that thing -___-

Re: Auto Login

You have both LightDM and GDM3 installed?
