I'm looking for a way to automatic login into LXDE GUI. I do not want to disable window manager but I want to start without a need to login without any login screen - just go directly into LXDE.

Best regards


This is how to do it for a Lubuntu install. If you have installed LXDE over a different system, you may have to modify it.

Create or edit the file /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf

Add the following to this file

    Thanks! In my case I did modify /etc/lxdm/lxdm.conf file: "autologin=root". Now I have automatic login, Nov 11 '16 at 16:26
