    remove autologin

    I have an encrypted directory and autologin enabled. This has now resulted in a loss of my desktop. I've read posts on fixing this issue but I have a twist that is preventing it from working for me.

    I did the initial installation, and setup the auto login for a different user. With a recent update my desktop vanished with a host of errors, e.g. cannot update .ICE authority.

    The solutions I read suggested installing LXDE, logging into it and removing the auto login and re-installing gnome. I cannot do that, I installed LDXE but when I try loggin in the screen refreshes to the the other users login.

    Is there a way through Terminal that I can affect the change (remove autologin) when logged in as the other user?

    Hope this all makes sense.

    How about just using the usual GUI way, from within the desktop of the other user!?:

    • classic Gnome: "System -> Administration -> Login Screen"
    • Unity: search the Dash for "Login Screen"
    • Terminal: "gdmsetup"

    I'm new and unaware of this option, thanks, I'll give it a try.
