How can I change my user account settings using ubuntu 12.04 and lxde? Up to now, I always have to log in manually, which I'd like to avoid. Yet, I'm unable to find the corresponding sub-menu.

Kind regards,

To get Users and Groups under LXDE, you have to install Gnome System Tools. To do that

Just press Ctrl+Alt+T on your keyboard to open Terminal. When it opens, run the command below.

sudo apt-get install gnome-system-tools
