Don't see the autologin option in Ubuntu?19 Jun 2014
So you want your computer to autologin and you think you are crazy because NOWHERE can you find the stupid option to do so eventhough every google link gives you the same “it’s so easy” answer?
But why don’t I have that option?
Or you know, you could edit one of those config files which Canonical
keeps moving all over the place? (the internet suggests it should be in
lightdm.conf or in
And even after you found the config files and changed it… Still autologin doesn’t work on Ubuntu!
Well, you are not crazy
What you probably did was enable fulldisk or home-folder encryption. Of course autologin then doesn’t work… It is possible to remove this post-install, but be prepared for some terminal incantations, sweating and swearing.
At least now you know you were not alone in this problem. Good luck!
