automatic user name at login

Postby mchenier123 » 2017-10-03 23:33

Hi everyone I'm new to Debian and never have to solve this ''problem'' in Ubuntu.

Is it possible to get the username automatically at login and have only the enter the password. I use the Debian Mate Desktop.

Thanks,

Martin

Login name is considered sensitive information, but if you want? check this

Thanks for the answer. Which of LightDM or GDM is the actual greeter in Debian Mate? I have to install LightDM to modify this option?

Well I found my answer here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BWBHJmAmZgk

sudo gedit /usr/share/lightdm/lightdm.conf.d/01_debian.conf

[Seat:*]
greeter-session=lightdm-greeter
greeter-hide-users=false
session-wrapper=/etc/X11/Xsession
