Ok, the autologin feature is quite easy set up with entrance, but the instructions were hard to find for meemosmile So here it is shortly if somebody else is missing these instructions.

first set autologin on with command (need to be root):
ecore_config -c /etc/entrance_config.cfg -k /entrance/autologin/mode -i 2

then set autologin username:
ecore_config -c /etc/entrance_config.cfg -k /entrance/autologin/user -s "username"

A thought on this:

Someone set up a VMWare system, used Ubuntu as the guest os in it, configured Firefox to autostart and set it to his bank for homepage.
He enabled autologin in everything.
[ default enabled with Ubuntu ]

so all anyone needs to do is get their hands on the usb drive with the vmware files for this install to have complete acces to the guy's bank account.

He did this to "be more secure" for his online banking.

an epic failure in security, to use autologin for anything.

while a livecd it's not as serious, on an installed system, it should NEVER be used.


and yes, I could grab the website url and post the forum entry where someone did exactly what I posted here.
I pointed out the security issue of his actions there when it was posted.
