[SOLVED]About login username and password

Postby FinixFighter » 2019-02-03 11:42

Hi! :) I installed Debian testing on my pc and I noticed that I need to insert both username and password at the login. I would like to insert only password, is there a way to keep username memorized? (I don't want to write the username every time I turn on my pc)

For LightDM, see https://wiki.debian.org/LightDM#Enable_user_list

For GDM(3) that should be the default behavior, AFAIK. Ref: https://help.gnome.org/admin/system-adm ... le.html.en

I don't think you can enable this for a console login. I have a guide for automatic login at a console though: viewtopic.php?f=16&t=123694

See also http://forums.debian.net/viewtopic.php?f=30&t=47078, this information is readily available via a search engine.

OK, great, please add [SOLVED] to the thread title to avoid people asking about this again (hopefully).
