 +====== lightdm autologin ======
  
 +in order to automatically login a user on a xubuntu or any other linux that runs lightdm you can simply add the user to your lightdm.conf file 
 +
 +edit the file in /​etc/​lightdm/​lightdm.conf and add these two lines to the SeatDefaults block: ​
 +<​code>​
 +autologin-user=myUsername
 +autologin-user-timeout=0
 +</​code>​
 +of course you need to replace myUsername with your actual username. ​
 +
 +keep in mind that once you have this option set encrypting your home directory is probably very pointless... so if you want your user data protected don't use autologin!
