[SOLVED] Installed, Updated, then Rebooted. And then...
« on: July 26, 2015, 02:15:26 am »
During installation process, I checked the box to 'Log in automatically' so that I wouldn't have to keep typing in log in information at each boot. Then when I finished the installation, everything looked right and then I updated my computer and rebooted. After that I had to log in (failed to log in automatically) and then conky looked ...well wonky. It looked like it had defaulted to the original conky style. I figured out how to fix the conky, I just went to conky manager and reloaded the conky file. But, I don't know where to go to make it so sparky automatically logs in. Help?

To activate autologin when lightdm is the display manager, open (as root) /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf, uncomment (delete "#") and change the appropriate lines in "seat defaults" to:
   autologin-user=yourusername,
   autologin-user-timeout=0.
See http://lxlinux.com/#12 for additional information.
