    Google Xfce, they have documentation by vers. bugfixes and support forums, just may be a more direct route for you.;-)

    It has nothing to do with Xfce or whatever desktop ennvironment you're using. It happens earlier, before the window manager starts, at the session manager level (kdm or gdm).

    • for kdm, edit the file /usr/share/kde4/config/kdm/kdmrc and change
      AutoLoginEnable=false to AutoLoginEnable=true
      You should also specify your login name in AutologinUser
    • for gdm, edit the file /etc/gdm/custom.conf and change
      AutomaticLoginEnable=false to AutomaticLoginEnable=true
      Also specify which user in AutomaticLogin=


    There might be fancy GUI interfaces to do it that I don't know about.
    This is not the openSUSE way, just the Linux/Unix generic way.

    Maybe the following command would tell me what it is:
    ps ax | grep -e gdm -e kdm -e session
