How To Enable Automatic Login In Fedora Linux

Setting up Fedora 10 to log into our account automatically is very easy. You simply need to append a few lines to the file called custom.conf located in the /etc/gdm/ directory. Now, open the above mentioned file in a text-editor like gedit or kedit, and append these lines:

[daemon]
TimedLoginEnable=true
TimedLogin=<Your-Username>
TimedLoginDelay=0

so that the configuration looks something like this:

Alternatively you could also try using the following settings, if the above do not work:

[daemon]
AutomaticLoginEnable=true
AutomaticLogin=

Unfortunately, no GUI is still available for GNOME on Fedora 10 to achieve this! You can see the screencast below to get a clear picture of the entire How-To:
