Description Janek Walkenhorst univentionstaff 2013-02-28 16:15:40 CET
Currently enabling "lightdm/autologin" generates the configuration
. This creates a new user for each session; To allow autologin with a specific user the configuration must be
with USERNAME being the user to use for the session.

The UCRV should be changed to allow this.

Patch in SVN: dev@r39329
Comment 2 Moritz Muehlenhoff univentionstaff 2014-04-07 14:15:11 CEST
The new UCR variable lightdm/autologin/user allows the configuration of the user under which the automatic login should occur. If the variable is unset a temporary guest user is used as before.
Comment 3 Erik Damrose univentionstaff 2014-04-08 12:58:03 CEST
OK: automatic login with guest-user or the user defined via lightdm/autologin/user works. If a nonexisting user is set, login will fail silently and the greeter is shown. The user just has to be valid, no prior login has to happen.

OK: Changelog
