Debian :: Auto Login On Boot

Mar 19, 2015

I am new to Debian and I have been trying to find a way to auto login to a users account upon Debian booting. Is there a way to auto login to the root account upon a Debian boot? Is it possible to do this with GNOME installed as well as Minimal?

Debian Configuration :: Auto-login And Auto-connect To Networks

Jun 3, 2010

I press On-button, Debian boots, logs in and automatically connects to the Wireless network AND! to my local pc via LAN. It runs an ssh server, so I can ssh into debian over internet and communicate with the local pc (send a magic packet).Here are my problems:

1) I don't how to log in automatically. This and this doesn't work.
2) I need a network tool that can manage multiple connections and has a reconnect feature. With the default network manager I cannot even connect to more than one network simultaneously although I have two network devices of course.

And I guess I can run all that in console mode, right?

Debian Multimedia :: Checked Auto Login After Installation And Now Can't Get Rid Of It?

Jun 18, 2011

I have recently installed Debian Lenny with KDE3. I foolishly checked Auto Login after installation and now I can't get rid of it. The KDE Login Manager window seems to offer the option of turning off auto login, but it does not work. I have tried useradd and userdel but this only makes things worse.

Debian Multimedia :: How To Auto Enable Numlock On GDM Login Screen

Jan 23, 2016

I'm on Debian testing Gnome 3.18 and I searched, tried, searched and tried... no way! numlock will always stays off whenever I reboot and reach login screen.

.... I checked bios settings > numlock is on
- installed numlockx
- added those lines to /etc/gdm3/Init/Default (if [ -x /usr/bin/numlockx ]; then /usr/bin/numlockx on fi)
- checked dconf gnome /settings-daemon /peripherals /keyboard remember-numlock-state: true

Ubuntu Security :: Ecryptfs Doesn't Auto-decrypt With Auto-login

Jan 6, 2011

I recently installed 32bit maverick and wanted to make it login automatically. I tried enabling auto login from Admin > Login but that didnt work and I was still prompted for my password. Then I went to Users & Groups and changed the password option to Do Not ask for password at login now after I reboot, the user list is shown (only 1 user) and it doesnt ask for password after I click on my username.

However, then it gives a few errors (as i vaguely recall):

1. cannot load .ICE directory in my home directory
2. some error 256 about a gconf-sanity-2 file
3. nautilus cannot load my home directory etc

and then it gets stuck without loading anything (blank wallpaper). i ve tried navigating to my home directory using Alt F2, gksudo nautilus and my home dir contents are encrypted by the ecryptfs (there is a readme.txt file and a shortcut). i have tried to decrypt but it doesnt work... i ve also tried to start/stop gdm, and startx but nothing works. if i stop gdm, then the prompt doesnt recognize my password and keeps on rejecting the commands i enter... I think this has something to do with the home dir not being decrypted due to the dont ask for paswd option... how can i disable the dont ask for pwd without the gui (i can access my / by booting through an external usb).

Debian :: Kdm Fails To Auto-boot ?

Jun 7, 2010

I am having a strange issue with my xserver. I do have nvidia graphics. My system is Debian Squeeze with limited packages from Sid to fix issues when needed. Currently I don't think that there are any installed from Sid that have not since been updated through testing. It also contains one package from Lenny that does not exist in Testing for some reason, ogle the dvd player.

After an update the other week my gui failed to come up. That is not that unusual with nvidida. So I reinstalled the driver and all seemed to be fine until the next reboot some days later which failed. I reinstalled the driver again and all seemed fine.

The machine did not come out of hibernate cleanly some days later and upon reboot no gui

I have tried the whole group of driver packages out of sid, testing, stable. All are afflicted with the same problem. When the box drops back to the login if I login and issue from root '/etc/init.d/kdm stop' then '/etc/init.d/kdm start' the gui comes up just fine. It also seams to launch much faster than it has for some time.

A friend has questioned if kdm is starting to early in the launch process. I think he may be on to something. But looking at the files in /etc/rc*.d does not seem to indicate to me that is the case. kdm has the launch number 5.

The machine has been converted to the, what is it, multi-process launch thingy, quite some time ago now, like a year maybe? These are what is in the sequence from kdm on


The install is amd-64 using the standard debian kernel.

Debian :: Auto Start At Boot Us The Following Lines In The /etc/rc.local?

Jun 13, 2011

I am using Deluge on my Debian server, for a simple auto start at boot I us the following lines in the /etc/rc.localsudo -u User delugedsudo -u User deluge-webDeluge is running after boot but i wane check if its running with User account and not as root.So I did a ps -aux | grep deluge and notice a line that root is trying to run the command sudo -U User deluge-web (i think its trying).

User 1735 1.5 1.0 187680 21604 ? Sl 16:30 0:04 /usr/bin/python /usr/bin/deluged
root 1736 0.0 0.0 20924 1168 ? S 16:30 0:00 sudo -u User deluge-web
User 1737 1.5 1.1 70400 24084 ? S 16:30 0:04 /usr/bin/python /usr/bin/deluge-web

The question is what does this mean? can i leave it running, is it better to kill it if so how to prevent that it happen on start-up.

Debian Configuration :: Auto Start Proxy On Boot

Aug 13, 2015

I have a debian 8.1.1 server running owncloud and a proxy server at home. I have everything working fine, with one exception. The proxy server won't start on boot. If I ssh into the server, then run "sockd -D" as root, it starts up and runs just fine. Any guides I find refer to the init.d script method that worked in Wheezy, but that isn't working. I think it has to do with Jessie switching to systemd? I had used someone elses script in init.d, and ran update-rc.d, but it still doesn't start.

With Jessie, how can I make "sockd -D" execute on system startup?

Ubuntu :: Run Application Before Gdm (login Screen Or Auto Login)

Feb 22, 2010

I have program that work like Fedora Firstboot it's run only one time after finish installation. I have two questions to ask.

1. How can I start this application before gdm start (login screen or auto login)

2. How can I start this application in fix display resolution (800x600)

My method now is

(This is a part of script , this script execute from /etc/init.d/myfirstboot , I create symlink to /etc/rc2.d/S1myfirstboot for start it before anything)

gdm-stop # first time I use /etc/init.d/gdm stop
export DISPLAY
/usr/bin/Xorg :1 &


I don't understand why first time firstboot start the system will auto loging in but not complete yet and then my script is start and it's work does not fine I think that is another user is already login , but if I re run my firstboot again and again (by setting something that can revoke my firstboot and restart) it's work before auto login and every things is ok!

Ubuntu :: Don't Use Auto Login Option

May 16, 2010

Ubuntu install offers the option of automatically logging one in at startup.If you choose this option, you are logged in automatically. However, you are still asked for your password, to unlock your keyring. So all you have done, is saved yourself one click (or one key press of the enter-key).The downside, is that there is no delay of your automatically started programs that maybe wait for you to log in. These can start using improperly initialized resources - like the keyring, I suppose.

In my case, this has resulted in the sound system failing. Restart then resulted in the sound being restored but the Trash folder going missing and so on. Finally, the Quit button on the task bar vanished forever. Perhaps I have identified the cause incorrectly, but that is my assessment and therefore I recommend not to use this login option.I am running 10.4 Gnome 64 bit. The program I started automatically, was Evolution.

Ubuntu :: Can't Stop The Auto-login

Aug 29, 2010

I was going through some settings and inadvertently changed the UID for my primary logon. I then realized what I did and changed it back and set the group back to my username.Since then, it only auto-logs in on startup. I cannot get it to prompt for a password again. I've tried normal things like changing "ask for password on login" and then changing it back, but that hasn't helped. I'm sure there's something else that I'm missing, but don't know what it is. Right now, it says "asked on login" but it doesn't.

Ubuntu :: SSH Auto-login Script Using RSA?

Sep 14, 2010

have a question about auto-login scripts for SSH where RSA keypair authentication is used.Basically, I have a server (say, server1) configured with RSA keypair authentication. This server is connected to another server (server2), that I connect to via server1 and for which I use the same passphrase and public key as I use for server1. I was wondering if it is possible without writing out the passphrase in a file to "forward" the phrase on from server1 to server2 in an auto-login script, saving me having to type it in twice
