Class: How to configure for auto login
Difficulty: Easy to set up, but make sure to consider security issues
Time: 5 minutes to configure
Desirability: Sacrifices a security feature in exchange for a little more convenience.

Automatic was disable by default as it's was consistently buggy when being set up by the installer. That and I'm a firm believer in that Linux security starts with your password.

It's easy, however, to set it up yourself.

1. Hit Alt+F2 to bring up a run dialog and type "gksu pcmanfm" to open the file manager as root and enter your password.

2. If you're using Peppermint One, navigate to /etc/xdg/peppermint/lxdm and open the configuration file there. In Peppermint Ice, the file
is found in /etc/xdg/peppermint-ice/lxdm

3. Uncomment (delete the # sign and preceding space) in front of the lines for "autologin" and "session", then change the username dgod (who was the guy who wrote LXDM) to whatever your username is.

So more info to help (thnxs to mister google)
