Found out that instruction
If you’d also like to start logging into the appliance automatically under your new identity (instead of John Harvard’s), execute
sudo nano /etc/gdm/custom.conf
and change jharvard to your own username. Then hit ctrl-x, then y, then Enter to save and quit.
mentioned in appliances manual brings out empty file therfore making it unable to repalce "jharvard" with newly created username.
Have anyone else tryed setting this up? How have you done it?
With my limited knowledge I've only been able to establish that the "etc/gdm", which apears to be suposed to be a directory, is actually a "plain text document" of 775 bytes after accessing it's properties in Computer/etc/ directory via graphical interface of appliance.
Currently i am using "su" terminal command for user switching instead but just for the sake of knowledge and cs50 manual validity would be nice to kniw how to setup auto log in.
TLDR: How to setup auto logging considering "sudo nano /etc/gdm/custom.conf" opens empty file?
