Re: Xfce autologon howto

Autologin is a function of the display manager (SLiM) rather than the desktop environment.

So edit /etc/slim.conf and edit these two lines:

default_user username
auto_login yes

Replace username with your actual username.

Debian buster doesn't use SLiM (because it's dead upstream and it won't support systemd login sessions correctly), see https://wiki.debian.org/LightDM#Enable_autologin for the required LightDM configuration. Or better yet remove LightDM (it runs X as root, which is bad) and follow http://forums.debian.net/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=123694 instead.
