Passwords & Display


I am brand new and try to find the answers before bothering others. Being new I am even having trouble in doing searches.

Using SuSe 9.1

1. Is there a way that I do not have to fill in the Name & Password when I log on?

2. I see there is a choice to remember passwords but can not find where it is located.

3. How do I adjust the display size on my screen & retain the new setting?

Thanks

oldtrout

As far as I know, no there is not a way to automatically log in... at least I hope not.. geez... ya know.. Linux is all about security (among other things)... and haveing the machine automatically log in, isn't too secure is it?

With "adjust the display size" are you referring to resolution?? or like, the size of the taskbar?? adjusting the taskbar size can bedone by right clicking on it... resolution can be configured through YaST (SaX2?)

I am referring to the screen. I can go to view and increase the size of the display but I don't know how to retain the setting when I log off.

Thanks

"I am referring to the screen. I can go to view and increase the size of the display but I don't know how to retain the setting when I log off."

Login as root, start a konsole, and type in the command:
sax2
sax2 will lead you through configuring the display.

yep... you can auto login with KDM (kde's login manager).
you forgot to mention what login manager and desktop environment you use... so im assuming the most popular (KDE).

and the settings for this feature are in the (drum role) control center.
