Auto login with Ubuntu - Ubuntu

Hallo! As a single user I want to use the auto login feature. There is no entry 'Select Login Window' under Menu/System, Administration. To add such an entry I need the name of the command. Any help? Thanks! Helge, DJ1WM -- Ubuntu 6.10 from c't liveDVD Kernel 2.6.17, Gnome-Desktop 2.16 dj1wm[AT]darc[DOT]de http://www.mydarc.de/dj1wm...

    Hi,
    well, the command works when entered in a terminal. Thanks so far.
    Adding an entry by 'Edit Menu' under Systemtools or in System/
    Administration and ofcourse checking it does not show an entry
    in either dropdownlist, respectively. ??

    It is my experience that the menu-editor is not completely bug-free.
    Maybe you should logout and then login again to re-activate the menu
    from the start.

    Is there a way to automatically log in two users? The gdm config box
    only has space for one name.

    On the same machine, I think not.

    But why would you want to do that?

    Engaged - until June next year!

    I have a bad habit of ing up my linux, needing to reboot, logging
    myself back in, but forgetting to log her back in. She gets home,
    presses Ctrl-Alt-F8, and instead of seeing her desktop she sees my login
    log. She gets annoyed. I get upsed. Woe.

    lol. So it would be great if it would automatically log us both in when
    I need to do a reboot.

    Well, here's a hint: last year around Xmas, I bought a second hand
    Thinkpad for my wife (a T41 with wifi, 40 gig HD, 512 RAM). Such
    Thinkpads are cheap nowadays (a year ago I paid only 550 Euro), and
    they are still in good shape. As a matter of fact it was still in
    warranty (which is 3 years).

    She still is very happy with that lean and mean little machine (14") and
    it fits perfectly in her favorite Vuitton handbag ... ;)

    The only problem is: what can I buy for her this year ... :-/

    Any ideas?

    Well, if she doesn't want to use the gadget as a phone, she can always
    use it as a weapon ... ;)
