I have Fedora 19 LXDE which has two user a/c's: one which I setup during the OS installation and the second which I setup later from the command line interface.

Since I only use the second user a/c, I'd like Fedora to auto login to the second user a/c without me having to select it and enter the password every time.

Would really appreciate some help on this, pls.

If you are using LXDM as your display manager, edit /etc/lxdm/lxdm.conf and add the following


If you are using lightdm as your display manager, edit /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf, uncomment/add the following


In both cases, username is the user that you want logged in automatically.

As of Fedora 25, Fedora's default display manager is LXDM for the LXDE spin

I tried but it does not not work. The issue, I think it is the password of the autologin user. In Gnome you can set a flag for a user, "do no require password for this user", but in Mate, which is Gnome 2, there is no such a flag. Alternatively, how do I remote control Gnome 3 without the very, very inefficient VNC? There should be a way to do this.

Could you separate your questions? It would be easier to find later, when typing in the search. NX is widely promoted, as is RDP.
