[LXQt] How to configure autologin in LightDM

Hello,
Running Manjaro LXQt here with LightDM.
How can I enable autologin?

I have edited /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf

I have modfied the section [Seat:*] with following settings but with no avail:

[Seat:*]
autologin-guest = false
autologin-user =
autologin-user-timeout = 0
autologin-session = lxqt

My System:
Description: Manjaro Linux Lysia 20.0.3
LXqt: 0.15.0
Kernel: 5.4.44-1-MANJARO
Window Manager: Openbox

Not a lightdm user, but surely that should include a username?

This might help:

Thanx a lot!

The username is correct but following your link, I was missing a part. Obviously I was not part of the "autologin" group!

This fixed my issue:

groupadd -r autologin

gpasswd -a username autologin

Thank you very much!
