Re: Auto Log in screen

In older versions of Fedora, there is a GDM tool that lets you set up so that when the computer starts and gets to the log on screen it automatically chooses the user, puts in the password and then runs.

The problem is, GDM-setup no longer is there. Was this replaced with something else? Was this left off of Fedora 9 for a reason?


Hi

I post the same question, and the answer :
edit /etc/gdm/custom.conf

however AutomaticLogin did not work properly as released, your system will need to be 'yum updated' for it to work properly.

Add the section in the file :

[daemon]
AutomaticLoginEnable=true
AutomaticLogin=your_username

If you can't yum update the system there is a workaround via a timed login :

[daemon]
TimedLoginEnable=true
TimedLogin=your_username
TimedLoginDelay=0

And why is not present in F9:
