The first thing we need to do is cd into this directory.

cd /etc/lightdm

So once we’re in there and if we do an ls you’ll see that a couple of things come up.

Step 2 – Edit the Configuration file

So what we need to do is go into this file here – lightdm.conf

Open it up with the command

nano lightdm.conf

So once we’re in there we’re going to scroll down and we need to find these two lines right here.


We need to remove the # sign from both of them and we’re gonna have to add ‘root’ to this line and ‘0’ to the second line.
