Auto login was created by macsddau
Hi,
I have made LinuxCNC to start at login and now I want to login automatically to my user account at PC startup.
I haven't seen tool in the menu to do that.
How to make it possible ?

You will need to edit the lightdm.conf file

sudo nano /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf

nano being a test editor

find the line with autologin-user and uncomment it
then change autologin-user = to your username

The above has to be changed somewhere below the "seat".
Long time, just recall that it has to be there.

Yup, that should do it. Also the delay has to be active, set to 0.
