Autologin

Hi! I have installed ubilinux-3, and now I need to make autologin for KODI (autostart). The problem is that the checkbox for "Do not ask password on startup" (actually, I do not know the right sentense, because I am using russian language) is not active in the properties of users. What should I do to make auto-login? Thx.

    Change the following file:
    sudo nano /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf
    
    ...
    #autologin-guest=false
    autologin-user=USERNAME
    autologin-user-timeout=0
    #autologin-in-background=false
    ...

    I've used following lines to get the same setup (I used SSH but it does not matter)

    clean ubilinux install

    sudo systemctl disable gdm
    sudo apt-get install software-properties-common -y
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:team-xbmc/xbmc-nightly
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install kodi -y
    sudo adduser --disabled-password --disabled-login --gecos "" kodi
    sudo usermod -a -G cdrom,audio,video,plugdev,users,dialout,dip,input,netdev kodi
    sudo nano /etc/init.d/kodi


    #! /bin/sh

    ### BEGIN INIT INFO

    ### END INIT INFO

    ############### EDIT ME ##################

    # user
    RUN_AS=kodi

    # Path of the PID file
    PID_FILE=/var/run/kodi.pid

    ############### END EDIT ME ##################

    test -x $DAEMON || exit 0

    set -e

    case "$1" in
    start)
    echo "Starting $DESC"
    start-stop-daemon --start -c $RUN_AS --background --pidfile $PID_FILE --make-pidfile --exec $DAEMON -- $DAEMON_OPTS
    ;;
    stop)
    echo "Stopping $DESC"
    start-stop-daemon --stop --pidfile $PID_FILE
    ;;

    restart|force-reload)
    echo "Restarting $DESC"
    start-stop-daemon --stop --pidfile $PID_FILE
    sleep 5
    start-stop-daemon --start -c $RUN_AS --background --pidfile $PID_FILE --make-pidfile --exec $DAEMON -- $DAEMON_OPTS
    ;;
    *)
    N=/etc/init.d/$NAME
    echo "Usage: $N {start|stop|restart|force-reload}" >&2
    exit 1
    ;;
    esac

    exit 0


    sudo chmod a+x /etc/init.d/kodi
    sudo dpkg-reconfigure x11-common
    "anyone"
    sudo /etc/init.d/kodi start
    # if no error
    sudo update-rc.d kodi defaults
    sudo reboot

    have fun !!!

    @laandennis i tried this but kodi wont boot , i just get "Starting kodi" if i run "sudo /etc/init.d/kodi start".

    might be because i am missing kodi.pid from /var/run. [strike]How did you install kodi?[/strike] do you have that file there? Myself I have not instaled kodi, it is included in the latest release of ubilinux. tnx
