lightdm greeter

PostPosted by daj63 » Thu Jul 13, 2017 10:05 pm

Hi

I've installed archlabs and liking it very much!

When I did the install I must have missed the bit where you request the login/greeter screen on boot. How do I enable this? At the moment it immediately goes to my desktop.

Guessing its the lightdm.config file but I am not sure which lines to uncomment. Had a look on the forums but could not find any ideas.

Any help much appreciated.

Thanks
David

PS you've done some great work!

In the light dm config file, uncomment this : autologin-user

quite correct

This is an excerpt from /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf
...
autologin-user=erik
autologin-user-timeout=0
#autologin-in-background=false
autologin-session=openbox
..

I want to login. You do not.
Change it with a hashtag in front. Use menu System Settings/ Text Editor as root to edit the file

#autologin-user=erik
#autologin-user-timeout=0
