How to Enable Auto Login by Terminal? [Solved]

Hello, everyone!

I’d like to enable automatic login for a while, but I can’t do it directly to system settings. How can I enable auto login by command line?

Thank you so much,

Jônatas Rocha.

sudo nano /etc/gdm3/custom.conf

Thank you, @Aravisian! I’ll try to do it! :smiley:

Hey, @Aravisian!

I didn’t find any comment.

What version of Zorin OS are you using?

Zorin OS 16 Core.

Please double check the command and path above. I think there must be a typo in your terminal command. I just checked this on two machines and the file is present on both.

You can also do this with GUI:

sudo -i


Navigate to "Other Locations > Computer > /etc > /gdm3 then open custom.conf in Gedit Text Editor.
