<SOLVED>pre-populate login ID on LXDE
« on: May 14, 2019, 07:24:44 pm »
Is there any way to pre-populate the login ID field on Sparky LXDE on a system with only one user?

Edit /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf file and change the line from:
Code: [Select]
#greeter-hide-users=to:
Code: [Select]
greeter-hide-users=false

Actually, "greeter-hide-users=false" already existed, but it was commented-out. All I had to do was delete the '#'. Thanks!
