I am administering a hybrid server/workstation using Ubuntu 12.04. There are several users that have access to the PC, and it is also working as a simplified fileserver using samba. This fileserver is associated to an account, which also has a Dropbox account where certain folders are synchronized for remote (outside the local network) access.
I would like that the "server" user session to be started automatically, but without logging in to the desktop. In other words, I would like that the first screen showed after booting is LightDM, but with one account already started (and protected by a password).
Is it possible?
