I am stomped. I have a Kali Linux USB live with persistent encrypted volume, with the latest update. Everything is fine, except when I try to disable auto login, I can’t seem to get it work. I switched from LightDM to SDDM. I tried everything from this link (https://techpiezo.com/linux/enable-or-disable-automatic-login-in-ubuntu-20-04/) and other Google results.
- I confirmed /etc/X11/default-display-manager is SDDM.
- I edited /etc/sddm.conf.d/kde_settings.conf to comment out the autologin section.
- I even edited /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf to comment out auto login.
- I even created /etc/sddm.conf.d/autologin.conf with the autologin commented out.
When I boot up, after I type in the password for encrypted volume, it goes straight to Plasma loading.
I can log out of the “kali” user and I will get a login screen. But I want to stop auto login.
Any pointers is greatly appreciated.
