Enabling auto login on MXlinux 18.1

By | April 18, 2019

Mx linut uses lightdm as a default login manager which aks for username and password for logging in to enable autologin for user we have to make changes to the file /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf and uncomment the line autologin-user=user change it to
eg: autologin-user=cipher

Due to some reason i faced issue autologin lot working after making the above change i had to add autologin-user=cipher to lightdm-gtk-greeter.conf to get it working.

#sudo vi /etc/lightdm/lightdm-gtk-greeter.conf
