    Re: Automatic Login not working on 17.10

    Not working for me either. NVidia proprietary drivers needed for CUDA. I modified /etc/gdm3/custom.conf as suggested. Still booting to login screen.
    UPD: I had XFCE4 environment installed as well as a login choice. I have removed it since and auto login still not working. Still prompting to login.

    What makes matters worse is that Vine does not allow any VNC connections until I login on the physical machine. This renders my Ubuntu machine unusable in headless mode.
    Very disappointed with this version of Ubuntu.

    It is turning itself off after every reboot.

    I clicked Unlock, entered my pw and set the Automatic Login switch to ON. Closed the dialog, Re-started the Users dialog and confirmed that the setting was still there. But after reboot, I had to enter my password, and the switch had turned itself off.

    This worked fine in 16.04.

    Thumbs down Re: Automatic Login not working on 17.10

    Apparently this is a known bug if you are using Nvidia proprietary drivers and thus, non-Wayland session.
