    LXDM, getting to be usable

    Could someone please walk me through the changes I need to do to get LXDM working? It's on my computer, and I have two users, but it keeps loading to me, and I want it to default to the other user. Following this link,

    https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/LXDM

    where it says " Autologin

    To log in to one account automatically, without providing a password, find the line in /etc/lxdm/lxdm.conf that looks like this:

    #autologin=username

    Uncomment it, then substitute your own username instead of "username". "

    It's been a long time since I have done anything "sudo", and the file manager is PCMANF_

    Averatec (older) laptop, dual booted with XP and Linux Mint LXDE (I know, it's not Ubuntu, but this is a huge forum and they are so much the same)

    Thanks in advance

    At the moment I am a bit unsure what the problem exactly is, is the description from Arch incorrect or do you have a problem editing the file.
    While there are several ways to edit the file, opening a terminal and typing

    Code:
    sudo nano /etc/lxdm/lxdm.conf
    should do the trick. When you are finished editing, type Ctrl-O to save the file and Ctrl-X to exit the editor.

    Thanks, you are right, trouble editing the file, will try that when I get home from work tonight.

    Also, it seems that there should be some sort of "splash screen" , like


    http://www.google.com/imgres?q=lxdm&...9,r:2,s:0,i:79

    Am I missing something? Thanks again

    You need to specify that in the config file, download or create your own splash screen.
