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 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?

Fedora :: Auto-login As Root In 15 In Runlevel 3?

Jul 28, 2011

How to auto-login as root? Our target runlevel is 3. Since Fedora 15 use systemd, it seems that all the tricks I did before with initd are deprecated now. I know it sounds inconsiderate to auto-login as root, but I'm setting up Fedora 15 in a closing environment where convenience tops safety.

General :: Auto Login Will Not Work After Upgrade - Sabayon 5.2

May 4, 2010

I'm in the process of trying Sabayon 5.2. After the initial install, I had 800 packages to install to upgrade - went very smooth - but on re-booting, the auto login was gone. No problem, I reset using 'run command' 'kdm' and the 'convenience' screen. Checked all the correct places, and re-booted - no auto login, and I can't get it to 'stick'?

Fedora :: Way To Auto-login Account / Don't Have To Type Password Everytim Switch On PC?

Feb 4, 2011

1. I am currently using a basic fedora 14. I had a fedora 8 DVD that contained many packages including its installation (I mean it was bootable and had its iso image. Now my question is that is there any way by which I can install the packages(like from that DVD to fedora 14? I have a slow internet connection and its not possible for me to download large files.

2. I installed some packages via yum. My friend also has fedora 14 but unfortunately he doesnt have a internet connection to download the files via yum and install them. Are the .rpm files downloaded via yum stored in some specific folder, so that I can transfer those files via a flash drive to his computer and install them directly there?

3. Is there a way to autologin my account so that I dont have to type my password everytime I switch on my PC?

4. Everytime and every session I try to access a ntfs partition, it asks for my root password. Any tricks to bypass this?

General :: Auto Start Bash Script After Login To Desktop?

Mar 26, 2010

I am using Fedora and trying to auto run a script soon after the unit boots to desktop. I found many suggestions and finally decided to use the Sessions->Startup Programs option (under System->Preferences->Personal->Sessions menu). I added my script in the Startup Programs with the command 'sh'. Now I have two questions here:1. When I use the command 'gnome-terminal -e', I get 'There was an error creating the child process for this terminal' message after logging into the desktop. Can any one tell if I am missing something here?2. Even if I use sh instead of gnome-terminal, I still want to see the script executing. In other words, my script has certain echo statements indicating the flow of the script. But I don't see any shell opening up with these echo statements showing up, after the unit boots to desktop. But the script was still executed with no problem

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

OpenSUSE :: How To Turn On Auto Login Feature

Jan 16, 2011

When I first set up my computer I had it set to auto log me in (no lectures necessary. I know the risks and I'm not root!). My son needed to do some video editing so I set him up w/an account and turned off the autologin feature. I'm trying to turn it back on now, but it won't. I've gone into Configure Desktop, Advanced tab, Login Manager, entered the requisite root password, and clicked on the Convenience tab. Enable Auto-Login is checked, and my account is selected as the user. However when I power up the machine it always presents the login screen. I've also tried enabling the password-less login but that didn't make a difference.

Ubuntu :: Enable Auto-login For Some Users And Not Others?

Jan 18, 2010

Meaning when I turn on the computer, it automatically logs into the family account; and they never need to enter any passwords.Second, under System -> Administration -> Users and Groups (users-admin from terminal) there is a "Don't ask for password on login" option (toggle) which is desirable for this family account. However, I have never seen this option enabled, but always grayed out. Is there any way to enable this option?In short, I want:1) For the family account never to require a password on login.2) Automatically log into the family account on boot.

Ubuntu :: Disabling Auto-login From The Terminal?

Mar 4, 2010

I enabled auto-login on my netbook without considering that my /home partition is encrypted, so now I can't log in. Is there any way I can disable auto-login without using the GUI?EDIT:I was able to get around this by going to a TTY, logging in, then killing X and starting GDM again. Still, this is not acceptable. Subscribe to the bug here, if you agree with me.
