Enable Autologin Gdm3

As root edit the file /etc/gdm3/daemon.conf  :

nano /etc/gdm3/daemon.conf

Look for the lines :

#  AutomaticLoginEnable = true
#  AutomaticLogin = user1

Remove the # signs before each line and replace user1 with your own username.

So in my case ( username = eric ) these lines will look like :

AutomaticLoginEnable = true
AutomaticLogin = eric

To see it working switch to tty1 :

CTRL + ALT + F1

Login as root and then :

/etc/init.d/gdm3 restart
