Question Logoff problem


Hi

New (relatively) to linux have installed and setup Mandrake 9.1. The problem is I've got it set to use the Mdk login manager when I try to logoff it display a "Logout/Cancel box" drops back to command line briefly and then logs straight back in! Then when I logoff from here it brings up the Mdk menu asking if I want to login as another user, Reboot, or Shutdown...basically what it should have offered in the 1st place.

I can't see anywhere to change/check the config file and it's driving me crazy on what is otherwise a very good OS !

Thanks for any help I've been looking for a week online but with not much joy!

Whether using kdm or gdm, whether in
kde or gnome, go to your configureation
application and find the login manager.
Then, disable automatic logins.

Cheers,
Tink

Thanks Tinkster,

I went into Control Center->Login Manager and unticked "Auto-login". Unfortunately, when I rebooted it logged straight back as usual! The only change is that when I click logout, it logs back in as normal ...then asks for password, which I think is not quite what I had in mind ! Shouldn't it have done that on 1st login? Also, where are the script(s) kept so that I can manually change them (assuming of course I know what i'm doing )!
