Re: [K12OSN] Autologin not working

i use KDM to auto-login.
i just set the /etc/sysconfig/desktop the same way you did which starts KDM and i'm attaching a link to the kdmrc file which enables auto login.

you can use kdiff (or some other diff GUI app) to compare these files and find something you probably missing.

i hope it helps.

Hello all,

I'm running K12LTSP 5.0 on my test box and I'm trying to got Autologin to
work. I've looked at serveral postings on this but I cannot seem to get it to


Two things that bother me.

1 I edit the /etc/sysconfig/desktop file as in the second link says to but the
file is empty. Was it suppose to be empty? I went ahead and entered:

2. Changes to the /etc/X11/xdm/kdmrc seem to have no effect. Is the system
using the file?

So, this leads me to determine which mode the server is using GDM, KDM, XDM
and How do I switch from ??? to KDM?

Now, I also tried to use GDM to autologin as describe in other posting but the
file that they refer to does not exist, gdm.conf.

Any ideas?
