Automatic login

arch general mailing list-2
Hello,

How to enable automatic login in arch (using sddm and KDE) .

I tried enabling it in /etc/sddm.conf but it didn't work. Also I saw
something like getty but I didn't understand what it does or how to make it
work. In all other linux there is an option called "user" in settings but
that is absent in Arch.

Thanks in advance.

Hi.

I have an automatic login option in KDEs "System Settings" -> "Startup and
Shutdown"-> "Login Screen (SDDM)" -> "Advanced" -> "[ ] Auto Login".
Maybe that is what you are looking for.
I do not know anything about the config files since I do not use automatic
login.

Greetings
Tim

The package extra/sddm-kcm is needed for that.

I did it . Steps :

1. Edit /etc/sddm.conf and added user and session under autologin
2. sudo systemctl --force enable sddm
3. cat /etc/systemd/system/display-manager.service to see if everything
works
4. sudo reboot

If you're going to use automatic login, why not cut out the middle man and
ditch the display manager entirely?
