    Angry lubuntu 12.04 cannot disable autologin

    Hi All,

    I installed lubuntu 12.04 64 bit and while installing I checked 'autologin" option but now I do not want this feature. I entered this command:
    Code:
    update-alternatives --config lxdm.conf
    the output is:
    Code:
    There is only one alternative in link group lxdm.conf: /etc/xdg/lubuntu/lxdm/lxdm.conf
    Nothing to configure.
    So I edited corresponding lxdm.conf file and comment autologin line and then reboot the machine. But again it did not show login screen! What can be the problem? My lxdm file output is:

    Code:
    [base]
    ## uncomment and set autologin username to enable autologin
    # autologin=dgod
    
    ## uncomment and set timeout to enable timeout autologin,
    ## the value should >=5
    # timeout=10
    
    ## default session or desktop used when no systemwide config
    session=/usr/bin/startlubuntu
    
    ## uncomment and set to set numlock on your keyboard
    # numlock=0
    
    ## set this if you don't want to put xauth file at ~/.Xauthority
    # xauth_path=/tmp
    
    ## greeter used to welcome the user
    greeter=/usr/lib/lxdm/lxdm-greeter-gtk
    
    [server]
    ## arg used to start xserver, not fully function
    # arg=/usr/bin/X -background vt1
    
    [display]
    ## gtk theme used by greeter
    gtk_theme=Clearlooks
    
    ## background of the greeter
    bg=/usr/share/lubuntu/wallpapers/lubuntu-default-wallpaper.png
    
    ## if show bottom pane
    bottom_pane=1
    
    ## if show language select control
    lang=1
    
    ## if show keyboard layout select control
    keyboard=0
    
    ## the theme of greeter
    theme=Lubuntu
    
    [input]
    
    [userlist]
    ## if disable the user list control at greeter
    disable=0
    
    ## whitelist user
    white=
    
    ## blacklist user
    black=
    Thanks guys...

    Re: lubuntu 12.04 cannot disable autologin

    would it help to install
    Code:
    gnome-system-tools
    then change the option in Users and Groups, like in Ubuntu?

    you may find this page of help.

    Reverse the steps for autologin should work.

    Talking Re: lubuntu 12.04 cannot disable autologin

    Anyway, I solved the problem. I noticed lubuntu 12.04 uses lightdm as a display manager so I changed lightdm config file named lightdm.conf located at /etc/lightdm. then I uncommented some lines starting with autologin word. after reboot, it shows login screen. But it is again erroneous that lightdm does not respect lxdm.conf. I think it is also the key point if you want to enable autologin in lubuntu 12.04. So keep in mind guys!

    Why would it respect lxdm.conf? It is a separate program, with different options.
