Are you using Gnome or KDE? In KDE it's the 'Enable Password-Less Logins' in the Convenience section of the Login Screen settings of the System Settings.

Edit file /etc/gdm/custom.conf as root by running for example nano /etc/gdm/custom.conf and add these lines:


Fedora 20 and Xfce

Edit /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf file as root by running for example nano /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf.

Go to [SeatDefaults].

You also need to uncomment the lines:


Save (Ctrl+O) and Exit (Ctrl+X).

I use Xfce and lightdm. What file would I need to edit if you happen to know?

Thank you, that's exactly what I needed. And, thanx again for not assuming that everybody knows and loves vi. My personal favorite editor is nano, as you suggested here, although I like to call it "Mork's editor."
