GDM AutoLogin

These are the lines you need in your /etc/gdm/custom.conf ([daemon] section) to make auto-login work. It only auto-logs in on first boot, and it must be a non-root user.

AutomaticLoginEnable=true AutomaticLogin=whatever_username

The autologin doesn't require a reboot to work, just issue the following command:

/etc/init.d/gdm restart

this will restart the server and autologin the user you defined.

Hey, this still works if you're using Linux Mint Debian with GDM3! Use /etc/gdm3/daemon.conf as your config file.
