This is what my picture would look like if I was allowed to post pictures...
Account Type Administrator
Language English (New Zealand)
Login Options [blank]
Last Login Logged in
My Account is the only account - the administrator account - and the blank space is there whether the dialog box is locked or unlocked, as is the complete absence of the Auto Login option at the bottom.
I have 14.04 installed. I have 3 drives, so researching through the other login questions suggests that my drive might be encrypted. If it is, I need simple to follow steps to fix this so Ubuntu will auto login.
All I want is for Ubuntu to auto login on startup. None of the other questions in the forums has been helpful.
This question seems to ask the same question as this: Ubuntu 14.10 Auto Login I'm wondering now if this is a serious flaw in 14 that can't be fixed, or changed. This seems to provide the answer for 12.04 - would it likely be the same for 14? How can I enable autologin for my user account when the option is not there?
