I just installed Lubuntu 17.04, and am testing out the not-officially-released LXQT window system for it. Everything seems to work great so far, aside from a few little bugs; the only one that really bothers me is that I can't seem to figure out how to set it to skip the login screen. I have edited the lightdm.conf every which way to no avail. Has anyone figured out how to do this?

nano /etc/sddm.conf

and added the following text to it:

    Thanks, I was searching for the correct file to edit, because I don't have the files, that are mentioned in other explanations, but I have a sddm.conf - that solved it for me :)
