After using likewise-open to join my Ubuntu box (12.04 LTE) to an active domain, I found myself a little stumped as to how I can have Ubuntu automatically log in as a user from that domain. I've tried editing /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf, which works perfectly for local user accounts; the following just leaves me at the login screen, with "ad-user-01" not shown in the user list:
[SeatDefaults] autologin-guest=false autologin-user=DOMAIN\\ad-user-01 autologin-user-timeout=0 autologin-session=lightdm-autologin user-session=ubuntu greeter-session=unity-greeter greeter-show-manual-login=true
I have also replaced
DOMAIN\ad-user-01, to no avail (I assumed that the character would need escaping, but it doesn't seem to matter either way).
Is there something I'm missing? I've wondered if the problem wasn't that the auto-login process was happening before Ubuntu is on the AD - would there be any way to work around that?
Thanks for any advice~
