and put my name in
but always appears the login window.
the Xfce 4
not have the option to change the in users:
Security and Users
User and Group management
not have the option
Someone can help me?
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.
It appears the login window
Maybe the following command would tell me what it is:
ps ax | grep -e gdm -e kdm -e session
3044 ? S 0:00 /usr/bin/dbus-launch --sh-syntax --exit-with-session
3063 ? S 0:00 xterm -xtsessionID 2fdd483f9-33a2-4ded-a13b-9f76fd24d4a1 -geom 60x5 -T xdg-su: /sbin/yast2 -e su -c /sbin/yast2
25095 pts/4 S+ 0:00 grep -e gdm -e kdm -e session 3045 ? Ss 0:00 /bin/dbus-daemon --fork --print-pid 5 --print-address 7 --session
3047 ? S 0:00 /usr/bin/
xdm may also be in use here.
that is a problem?
You have the solution to this problem?
xdm is another display manager like kdm or gdm,it can be the default on a minimum install.
please_try_again has offered good replies to your question,my comment was simply to suggest one other display manager that may be in use.
