Autologin is not applied with calamares 3.2.1 on customizing PureOS ISO
Open, NormalPublic

Description

I'm working on customizing ISO based on PureOS using debootstrap with calamares 3.2.1 and xfce desktop environment and it's working fine on liveCD without any problem, but when i choose the autologin option during installation process, it's end up at the login screen after rebooting the system, and the file /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf is still in default options.

There is a new version of Calamares out and I wonder if this is still an issue? @hayder could you let us know if this bug is still open?

I've installed from

3213c8df689a1f19de31db27de72914d3c9dbb7103cf471a9bd9c3db30451894b73dbbc18a8818f624c4dd72fe87df2adb081ebb72b3d39fcac36ae45fa83284 pureos-8.0-plasma-live_20190501-amd64.hybrid.iso

It has Calamares 3.2.7

No change. This is still an issue.

Jup, reason being that the displaymanager isn't configured. This was once disabled on purpose, I just don't remember why, unfortunately.
I re-enabled the feature, the next live image should have it if there aren't any drawbacks to having it (I can't see any issues, the only potential clash would have been with the OEM installer, but we don't run the module there anyway).

IMHO, there aren't any drawbacks. Users will be able to choose what they want (either Auto Login or NO Auto Login) during installation and they won't need to go to Settings (unless they change their mind later on).

It should look like what we can see in the screenshot, if the user chooses Auto Login during installation.

[As you can see, Adwaita is default in Startup and Shutdown > Login Screen > Advanced > Cursor Theme | It should be Breeze.

Breeze is default in Workspace Theme > Cursor Theme, so no problem there.

Disambiguation: "default" means "as is by default in PureOS"

Maybe this minor issue could be addressed as well in the next live image]
