Question Novell Linux Desktop - Gnome Autologin


Hello,
I am running Novell Linux Desktop.
I have installed Gnome, but normally use KDE.
Is there a way to enable the system to login automatically with no password?
Or how can I change the login manager without re-installing?

Thanx

If you are running GDM, you can autologin a user by running the "gdmsetup" command as root, on a tab called "general" there ia an option to configure a user for autologin. If you are using KDM, you start Kcontrol -> System Administration -> Login Manager. There is an option there somewhere to configure a user for autologin.

LOL

if you dont know WHICH style you are using, then YOU need to use KDE.

Do yourself a favor.

KDE is very similar to Windows in the GUI.

it will ease the transition for you = ]
