AutoLogin - Solved was created by slowpoke
I'm a total Linux newbie, so please bear with me....

I have installed LinuxCNC 2.91 under Debian12.

This PC will only be dedicated to a milling machine and will only by used by me, and will probably not be connected to the internet so it would be more convenient if on power-up the login and password screen would simply be bypassed. This might be more of a Debian question however I can't seem to find a how to regardless of where I search, I did find one reference stating to modify
lightdm.conf

So I opened a command prompt and typed "sudo nano /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf" and then removed the '#' for the following two lines (I assume the # means comment) and added my user name after =

Changed.....

#autologin-user=
#autologin-user-timeout=0

to

autologin-user=myusername
autologin-user-timeout=0

I then did ^O, and ^X the file appears to have been updated, because when I reopen the file I can see my changes.
This does NOT seem to work and does not address the password aspect.

Suggestions welcome.

Been to long, but, i think there are several entries with those same lines in different sections of the conf file, the lines under the "seat" section have to be modified/activated for it to work.
And myusername should be the user name you log in with, not "myusername".

tommylight,

I did modify the lines under "seat" and "myusername" is my actual username, so it's something else.

Solved!

Not enough coffee, I had one extra 'l' in the username in the file

Thanks for responding.

@adbulasis12 - did you make sure you set the parameters under the [Seat:*] heading as @tommylight mentioned? This was around row 128 in the lightdm.conf file.

I started with the inputs under the [LightDM] heading as that's the first place I saw the sample parameters, but autologin did not work. When I changed the location, my autologin worked.

Note, I needed to change to root to save my changes ("sudo -i" at a terminal).
