auto login xfce

I have searched the forums and have not found a solution. I am trying to login straight to xfce with NO login. I would like it to boot to the X. I have set the runlevel to 4 but it still goes to the kdm session manager where I can choose the session type. If some one can help me or direct me to a place to fix this I would appreciate it. Thanks

In /etc/kde/kdm/kdmrc

find the section


AutoLoginEnable=false <- change to true
AutoLoginUser= <- your username here

then reboot
