Post by kosh07 »

Hello
I use XU4 with ubuntu mate 16.04
I dont want to see the login windows
I try to use not ask password on boot but still I should click login button

I googled about this but most of the posts refer to lightdm.conf
but I dont have like that file and when I make that file It jumps to console mode when I reboot
$ ls /etc/lightdm
lightdm.conf.d lightdm-gtk-greeter.conf.d lightdm-gtk-greeter.conf users.conf
this is the list of the above directory

How could I disappear login windows?
help me

To enable Auto-login, edit /usr/share/lightdm/lightdm.conf.d/60-lightdm-gtk-greeter.conf file like this.

Code: Select all

[SeatDefaults]
greeter-session=lightdm-gtk-greeter
autologin-user=odroid

wow it works
but I'm curious I did this before but there is no such file 60-lightdm-gtk-greeter.conf before
but I change update option to pre-released
then it appears why this happens?

When I freshly installed this latest image, I could find "60-lightdm-gtk-greeter.conf" file.
