linux, How To Enable Automatic Logon In Ubuntu

leave a comment »

When it comes to any Linux distribution, if it can be done in Windows, it definitely can be done in Linux.

To enable automatic logon in Ubuntu, you will need to open and run GNOME Display Manager (also known as Logon Window Preference) as root.

Start by bringing bring up the Run Application window from the keyboard by pressing Alt+F2 and proceed the command with gksu by typing the following:

gksu /usr/sbin/gdmsetup

then click Run and enter your password.

NOTE: Screen shots are from Ubuntu and Kubuntu 7.04 Fiesty Fawn, but should be similar in previous versions.

In Kubuntu, bring up the Run Application window from the keyboard by pressing Alt+F2 and type the following:

kdesu /usr/sbin/gdmsetup

then click Run and enter your password.

In the Login Window Preferences, select the Security tab and check the box next to Enable Automatic Login. If necessary select the user account to enable automatic login. Click Close to save settings.

The next time you boot your computer, you will not need to login anymore!

Remember, while auto login is convenient, it is a security risk, and you should make sure there are no risks involved before allowing auto login on your Ubuntu or Kubuntu computer.
