I am trying to autologin and auto startx on my ubuntu minimal installation (15.04 Vivid Velvet 32bits, mini.iso) I am following several guides that I found but none of them work (the startx part works, but not the autologin)
One of the problems is everytime I go and look for the file they tell me to edit, it's not there. When I do sudo nano whatever the file, it is empty (tty1.conf for example, or inittab) In all the guides they say to uncomment a line and add another, but all those files are empty for me. Maybe it is because they refer to Debian and things change.
I have managed to make it work installing nodm. Then I don't need to write my username nor password, and then, it auto startx (I added startx in .bash_profile), and finally takes me to i3-wm. I haven't installed a display manager (well, just nodm as the last option to try) nor desktop environment.
I would like to get it working without the need of installing a display manager (rungetty/mingetty/getty/whatever works and it's easy on resources) Please if you know the steps that work for you and ubuntu, or a guide that I can follow I would appreciate it. Thanks in advance
