This is a simple guide for automatically logging as a user with an XFCE session on Debian.

* Edit the lightdm config file:
<pre>
sudo nano /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf
</pre>
#*


*
Uncomment these two lines and replace bob with your username:
<pre>
autologin-user=bob
autologin-user-timeout=0
</pre>

* Reconfigure the lightdm package so that changes are taken into effect:
<pre>
sudo dpkg-reconfigure lightdm
</pre>
