LXDE AutoLogin

Received my Beaglebone Black in the mail yesterday and love it. I downloaded the https://rcn-ee.net/deb/flasher/wheezy/BBB-eMMC-flasher-debian-7.2-2013-11-15.img.xz image and flashed my beaglebone with the Debian build. I rebooted and then installed LXDE from the command line. Everything installed directly to the EMMC.

I rebooted and LXDE started. My question. Is there any way to autolog in? I found any article that talks about setting the lightdm.conf file which I’ve tried to do, but I’m not having much luck. The default user that comes up when I try and log in is x-session. Not sure what that means.


If it's LXDE shouldnt it be your lxdm.conf file? I use arch so not sure
the location. But should be close to this
/etc/lxdm/default.conf maybe

uncomment or add

More info can be found here

I don’t have a lxdm folder, but I do have a lightdm folder. I’ve tried changing the values there, but no luck.


Weird sorry, not familiar enough with the LXDE desktop on Ubuntu.
