User Accounts

I want to set up the user login to auto login. I am trying to access the user accounts to accomplish this but I cannot find it anywhere. Can anyone help? Thanks

The best way Ive found to do this is to edit the lighdm config

run

Code: [Select]
sudo medit /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf
and change

Code: [Select]
#autologin-user=vsido
#autologin-user-timeout=0
##autologin-session=UNIMPLEMENTED

to

Code: [Select]
autologin-user=your user
autologin-user-timeout=0
autologin-session=the WM you want

So at the moment mine looks like

Code: [Select]
autologin-user=luke
autologin-user-timeout=0
autologin-session=cinnamon

Thanks. I made the changes you said and it didn't do any good. Still had a log-in. On line  111 shows
Code: [Select]
autologin-user=
Code: [Select]
autologin-user=AlI put my name in and it worked. Thanks
