Open LightDM GTK Greeter Settings.
It should have a way to disable autologin somewhere.


(Thread moved from #site-feedback:feature-request to #support:xfce because the requested feature is already there, whether the OP has managed to find it or not. :smiley: )


sorry , i couldn’t find the other feature request , im new here , anyway , it would be a good feature to be added

It is added. It’s in the LightDM GTK Greeter Settings.

I quite enjoyed what happened here :slight_smile:

LightDM GTK Greeter Settings will save setting in /etc/lightdm/lightdm-gtk-greeter.conf and has no options for autologin true/false or on/off because the settings for that are in /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf

So, remove your name from the line 126 to be like this
or comment the line


is it added like in a future update or something ? i can’t find it on my GTK greeter settings , btw im on the latest update

I’m sorry. I was wrong. I haven’t used XFCE in years.

But Bogdan wrote above, how you can disable autologin in LightDM. Follow his instructions and you should be fine.

i already had it disabled but it would be nicer if it was added in the settings for convenience
