Hi Rubynox

Okay, to enable auto-login, we’ll have to play with the settings file of lightdm. Just follow these steps.

Start Root Terminal (Applications -> System Tools -> Root Terminal). We have to edit the file in Nano editor. Give the following command:

nano /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf

With your arrow keys scroll downwards. You’ll find a line like so:


Now remove the # at the beginning and add your username at the end. Something like this:


Replace ‘utkarsh’ with your username.

Now hit CTRL + X to close the file. Nano will ask you whether you’d like to save the file. Hit Y. Take a look at the screen shot below. I have highlighted the line for you.

Lightdm settings Rebellin Mate v3.5

Final step. Reconfigure lightdm to register the changes. Give the command below:

dpkg-reconfigure lightdm

Done! Reboot your computer. You should log in automatically. Let me know how it goes.


– Utkarsh.
