You have to be a member of a group called autologin.

Check out the scripts of AMD and see if you did everything.

https://github.com/ArchMergeLinux/amd-b ... ogin-v3.sh
Learn, have fun and enjoy.
But first use the power of the Arch Wiki
use the tutorials on https://www.youtube.com/erikdubois
then use the power of google
then use the power of our moderators.

Write xfce session in the config instead of budgie, if you use the script.

Edit:

here is the xfce script: https://github.com/ArchMergeLinux/amd-x ... ogin-v3.sh

I am struggling myself on an ArchMergeD-Cinnamon that does not want to autologin.

This is your page to go to

These settings solved it on ArchMergeD Cinnamon

Code: Select all

user-session=cinnamon
in your case

Code: Select all

user-session=xfce
and the rest

Code: Select all

autologin-user=erik
autologin-session=xfce

On ArchMergeD Cinnamon these settings worked for me and just these 4 lines.
Use syntax perl format to see quickly what lines are activated.

Seems to be working in strange ways.

Code: Select all

run-directory=/run/lightdm
session-wrapper=/etc/lightdm/Xsession
autologin-user=erik
autologin-session=cinnamon

All activated and still nothing. Use the script 800... nothing still no autologin. Strange!!!!
Update : reboot 12 times only 2 times autologin!
