I can't set autologin at startup and unlock

Hello dear Manjaro users,

I freshly installed Manjaro Gnome but it seems that I can not set autologin.
Already went to Settings>>Users>>automatic access but still I am asked with a password.

What should I do?

try to edit as root in terminal: ( sudo nano/etc/gdm/custom.conf )

# GDM configuration storage

# Uncomment the line below to force the login screen to use Xorg
# WaylandEnable=false



the terminal doesn’t recognise the command

EDIT: substituted nano with gedit, made the change, saved but the problem still persist at startup

that was a missing whitespace in the command - I’m pretty sure nano is preinstalled and available.
sudo nano /etc/gdm/custom.conf

You wrote your actual username there or you wrote {username}?
… no offense intended! - but you never know …

For example: AutomaticLogin=R0b
Test: create a new user with new password and test autologin with settings Editor of gnome?
If an extension is blocking AutoLogin, rename
to for example
and restart or logout/login…

Yes, I wrote my actual username :slight_smile:

Here is what I find in the path you showed me:

   ~/.l/share/gnome-shell  ls  :heavy_check_mark:
application_state material-shell-state
gnome-overrides-migrated notifications

what next?

EDIT: I disabled the “GNOME 4x UI improvements”
now autologin works
