Re: Autologin not working (lightdm, openbox)




Hi,

> Before anyone asks, i've looked all over the wiki and every other post online so i'm not sure why this isn't working. When I start up my machine X starts up fine. and it goes to the lightdm login screen, but it still makes me put in the password.

I've always had no problem with autologin with lightdm, all I ever had
to do was to set autologin-user in the [Seat:*] in
/etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf . Another option that I have used
successfuly is using lightdm-autologin-greeter and setting up
autologin-user in
/etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf.d/lightdm-autologin-greeter.conf

I guess you already checked this but double check you are able to
login with that user using a password.
