set default user and/or password in console login, automate startx


Hello. I use Slackware 13.0.

- is there a way to set the default user in console login so that all needed is to press enter(or event without it) to be able to input the password for that user

- also is it possible to console login without password, by just inputting user name and pressing enter

- how to put startx for that user right on login, so that the user doesn't input the command manually

Thanks in advance!

Why bother with console login if you anyway want to automatically startx? Why don't you try setting 4 as the default runlevel and then use KDM to autologin?
Honest question, I'd like to know if what you want is possible :-)


Regards.

You can simply put this at the end of /etc/rc.d/rc.local:
Code:
su - username -c startx
Where username is the user you want to login as.

Thank you for your replies. Yes, the auto "startx" works now.
Also another question, if I change to GUI login, then my keyboard layout becomes English although once I login I get to see my previously set layouts(RU/DE). How can I change this behavior to have these layouts on GUI login and not the default English one? Thank you.

If you are not using english keyboard layout, there are two alternative ways of fixing this. Both are described in CHANGES_AND_HINTS.TXT on your slackware image/dvd.

You'll have to edit the keyboard settings for HAL, and restart the hal daemon
Follow the instructions on this thread: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...13-0-a-751252/
