Summary: Autologin fails although the convenience settings are
set properly in Configure Desktop
Product: openSUSE 11.3
OS/Version: openSUSE 11.3
Priority: P5 - None
Found By: ---
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:220.127.116.11)
Gecko/20101203 SUSE/3.6.13-3.1 Firefox/3.6.13 GTB7.1
I originally set my machine up with a single (excluding root) non-privileged
account. Later my son wanted to do some video editing so I went into YaST and
added a second account and disabled auto-login so he wouldn't have to wait
until my login process was complete,then log me out and himself in.
After he was done, I went into the Configure Desktop, convenience area and
reset it to allow me to auto-login. However it wouldn't log me in
automatically. I tried several times.
I was able to go into YaST, Users and Groups, select the expert options pull
down and reset it via that mechanism, after which it worked.
I haven't tried changing the setting since I got it working again, so I don't
know if it was a one-off bug or if it is reproducible.
Reproducible: Didn't try
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Build system with one non-root user, configured for auto-login, run level 5.
2.Log in, then restart the system to make sure autologin works as advertised.
3.Open YaST, and create a second user.
4:Go into Configure Desktop, and turn off auto-login convenience feature.
5:Restart system. You should have a standard login screen now.
6:Login as the new user, then logout.
7:Login as the original user, and re-enable the convenience auto-login option.
8:Restart the system.
As described above, when I tried to re-enable the auto-login, it didn't work.
When I turn the computer on, I expected to be taken to my desktop w/o entering
As noted in the summary above, changing the setting in YaST worked. I don't
know if this is a KDE but or a system bug.
