When installing lubuntu, I forgot to uncheck the box so that it would boot up without me having to enter a password. Is there some way I can remove this requirement without redoing the installation?
Sorry, it was the other way around: I forgot to check the tick box labelled “Log in automatically without asking for the password”
Same question; can I change this without starting from scratch and re-installing?
You can try:
sudo mkdir -p /usr/lib/sddm/sddm.conf.d/ VISUAL=featherpad sudoedit /usr/lib/sddm/sddm.conf.d/autologin
And add the content
[Autologin] User=USERNAME # <== Replace USERNAME with your user name e.g. fausto (the name shown in the terminal) Session=Lubuntu.desktop Relogin=
and save the file.
I did not test it.
Thanks I found a similar suggestion here
I tried it using admin and now my system won’t complete the bootup. I guess I’ll just re-install…
If there is no user admin, why should it work if you set
Instead of reinstalling, you should try to fix your error:
Enter your username and type the password (no * are shown).
After login, execute
sudo nano /etc/sddm.conf
and delete the wrong line. After that simply
reboot to start the system again.
Sorry, I did not know about CTRL+ALT+F5 , which I take it gets me a command line/terminal shell
That’s the trouble with learning Linux from the internet. The pages are often not relevant or out of date or both AND I often don’t know the right question to ask or even understand the language when used in a Linux context.
I just thought - how can I fix my error if it won’t boot up?
The re-install is done. Thanks anyhow.
If you had created a user with password not configure SDDM.
If you had created a user without password is possible configure SDDM.
The password configuration not is in SDDM.
