Using automatic login with Fedora

I am using Gnome as desktop f rom some time, while not

big fan of gnome. GDM (gnome display manager) is

default manager. When it is changed to new source code,

there is not Graphical option to configure automatic

login with this. I was trying various time to search

automatic login feature (but I am not command line

user or expert, so not like to change configuration).

finally I got a solution for this. to do this you have

to do following steps:

1) Change GDM->KDE

2) change KDE configuration for Automatic login

3) by KDM, change desktop to Gnome (if you want to

use gnome)

1) easy method is to remove gdm with all dependency

$yum remove gdm

while make sure kdm installed on your machine

2) run systemsettings->Advanced->Login Manager

after application opened, go to Convenience (7),

select “Enable Auto-Login

User “”

“Lock session”

3) reboot your machine and you will be auto login

with selected user. it will default go to KDE, but

you can use gnome by Logout, select “Session” and

select “Gnome” and afterward you will be automatic

login to gnome session.

there can be various way to do this, but as I like use only

Graphical Interface for most configuration, so I tried this.

ya, kdm package need to install to work this, which will

pull some kde application.
