• Stop auto-login at computer startup


    I ticked automatically log in to computer on startup. I would like to require my password to log in now. How do I make this change?

    Thanks

    Edit: added screenshot

  • There’s GDM dialog on the screenshot. Antergos uses LightDM by default. If LightDM wasn’t replaced by GDM, then changes, made here, have no effect on LightDM.

  • @just I’m rather new to linux but I haven’t changed anything from the default antergos system. If what you say is true, what do I do next?

    Hmm.

    A few solutions are possible. Two easiest are (use either one or another):

    1. remove the username from the autologin-user=username line in /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf file

    2. comment out the whole line

  • If the whole autologin-user=… line was commented out, then also comment out one more line, immediately below it:

    #autologin-user-timeout=0

    Solution 1 fixed my problem. Thank you!
