Auto login

Just saying you should post the html link ( ) in KDE Forums, as there are much more people to get exposed this to and may help:

This is what worked for me (Plasma KDE 5 desktop)

Edit or create the file /etc/sddm.conf and add this:


Substitute your user name for $USERNAME

So you got it all done now and reached your end goal?


Well, this "was"working fine. I’ve been doing regular

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

While keeping an eye on sddm.conf file…its still there contents unchanged, however, no more auto login!

any suggestions?

Thanks AJ

Or as an alternative for my end goal, is there a way in kubuntu, like in windows, to add an .exe file to a startup config, or folder, so the app will start up and run, for all users, before the login screen?
