I have a VERY old kubuntu server that I had to install LXDE on in order to keep it going (before lubuntu was born).
I just upgraded it to 12.04 as I finally had a need for some more modern features. Unfortunately I have no idea how to get auto login to the desktop working again.
I have found suggestions that the following files should be edited
/etc/lxdm/default.conf /etc/lxdm/lxdm.conf /etc/xdg/lxdm/lxdm.conf /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf
to include something like
[base] ## uncomment and set autologin username to enable autologin autologin=username
but none of these files exist on my system and I cannot find any promising alternatives.
Any suggestions on what I should try or where I should look next would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
