Autologin in LMDE

  11 years ago

As I saw in the forums[1] and other sites in the web[2], there is a solution to the problem with autologin in LMDE.[3]

  • Open a terminal an type:
    • sudo gedit /etc/gdm3/daemon.conf

  • Edit the daemon.conf file by adding these line below [deamon] section

AutomaticLogin=your username

Now when you reboot your computer, the username you wrote will autologin.

[Desde el update pack 3, la opción de 'Configuración de la pantalla de identificación' funciona adecuadamente y es la forma más cómoda de realizar esta configuración]

He aquí una solución para el problema con el inicio de sesión automático para determinado usuario en LMDE [3]. (Debido a que no se desbloquea correctamente la ventana en el centro de control)

  • Escribir en la terminal:
    • sudo gedit /etc/gdm3/daemon.conf

  • Editar el archivo daemon.conf añadiendo las siguientes lineas bajo la sección [deamon]:

AutomaticLogin=your username

Ahora cuando reinicie el usuario que anotó iniciará sesión automaticamente.

Anyone knowingly modifying the Login to this is doing so by their own risk.

rm -rf /

Just Say NO.

Thank you for your advice.
I also think your warning/caution phrase is much better than mine.

@carlosjimy: Thanks, very helpful!

@kazztan0325, you're kinda right... a better warning/caution would be:
"If you put your PC where it is possible other persons touch it, it is Not Secure, ever!"

Well, except for removing all your personal data which is probably more precious than the system; which can after all, easily be re-installed. Still, if you are doing this, you have a safe backup. Right?

In any case, a nice simple solution for those who wish to enable auto login.

Thanks @kazztan0325, you're right. Anyway I think Linux is enough secure because any significant change a user may do, he will need the password.

I think it would be better if you would add a proviso like this:

"If you put your PC where it is possible other persons touch it, you should not enable autologin."

However it is common sense for us PC user...
if you would think you need not add it, just ignore this comments.
