I have a Windows 7 in VirtualBox. When I launch it, I don’t want to spend time with logging in. How to skip this step?
I found the solution here.
In short: launch
netplwiz, in the Users tab, uncheck the box next to “Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer”, press Apply, provide the password, then OK, OK.
You want to allow autologin in Gnome. If you are the only person who uses a given machine, with this you can save some time at each boot.
gdmsetup as a normal user, unlock it, and allow autologin.
Newer versions of Ubuntu use
lightdm instead of
gdm. So edit the file
/etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf and modify these lines under the section
Tip from here.
