LXDE auto login problem

Post#1 by uyduruq » 12 Oct 2012, 19:10

Hello,
I was using v1.1 x64 and now using v1.2 with copy2ram option.
I have created a module with v1.1 to disable auto-login for lxde which that just replacing lxdm.conf file under /etc/lxdm. This module seems not working with v1.2. I think module is loading before this file is really created on fs, because if I rename the file, I can see it under /etc/lxdm. Because of this, root is logged on automatically when porteus boots.

The other problem; I am using Porteus with LXDE, so KDE module is not in my usb stick. I see that, if I don't use "lxde" cheat code when booting porteus, I cannot logoff the session, it is automatically logged on again. If I use lxde cheat code, then I can logoff and see Porteus standart logon screen. This behaviour was different with v1.1, no cheatcode was required if only lxde module is present.

What might be the problem?

Try to add "z-" at start of your custom module name.

Did you try the use of "rootcopy" ?

in porteus-1.2 we have 'noautologin' cheatcode

Code: Select all

noautologin

   ... stops the Porteus startup process at the kdm/lxdm
       screen, so the user will need to provide a username
       and password to log in to their desired desktop
       environment.
This behaviour was different with v1.1, no cheatcode was required if only lxde module is present.
in 1.2 we have introduced 3rd desktop: XFCE which complicated things a bit (simple if -> else in rc.M is not possible anymore) so 'lxde' and 'xfce' cheats are necessary.

Cheers
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.

Thanks, noautologin has solved my problem.
I have checked the documentation before I ask to forum, but I realized that I had read old documentation after I saw this cheatcode!
