    Question How to auto login on Xubuntu 11.10?

    Hi, after my upgrade to Xubuntu 11.10, I manged to get everything working again except for one issue. In previous versions, there was an option to auto-login upon start. However, this options seems to have vanished now that Xubuntu switched to LightDM. I already tried the option "don't ask for password upon login", but still I have to click on the user to login. So, how do I get auto-login working again? Thanks, Timo

    No need to use kdm. The answer is in the thread linked by gsmanners in post #2. (Hint: see post #12)
