    Autologin doesn't work

    Hi,
    I trying to have autologin, but it doesn't work (sometimes, it does )

    Here is the content of lightdm.conf
    Code:
    myuser@myuser-HP-EliteBook-8570p:~$ cat /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf
    [Seat:*]
    autologin-user=myuser
    autologin-user-timeout=0
    pam-autologin-service=lightdm-autologin
    Please help!

    Seems you need to specify the session name

    What is the difference between user and session name?

    user is the username you log in with
    session is the name of the session, such as Lubuntu, Gnome-shell, XFCE and sets the desktop environment for you. If you log in normally and run
    Code:
    env
    it should show the session name
