    How to auto login on Kali Linux 18.3 RPi Zero W ???

    If this isent the correct place to place this post please tell me where or feel free to replace it.


    hi,
    So I have spent a good amount of time trying to setup auto login on my Kali Linux-system running on a raspberry pi zero w trying whatever I could find on this and other forums and I could not find anything that would work so here I am asking for help..

    kali-linux-2018.3-rpi0w-nexmon on a RPi Zero W.

    Question:
    How can i configure auto login to my raspberry pi zero w running kali linux?


    Thanks in advance

    [SOLUTION]
    In the command line, enter:
    kalipi-config

    This will open up a menu, navigate:
    (03) Boot Option
    >>
    (B1) Desktop / CLI
    >>
    (B2) Console Autologin

    Reboot the device if it worked you should no longer require a password to login on your machine
    (still requires a login when useing SSH)

    Hi

    Did you try to look into kali-config ? I think you can choose that in boot options.

    Kali being based on debian, searching for debian in google will give you quite a few results.

    Check if it's using lightgdm and if it does, this should work: https://steemit.com/software/@kskart...gin-in-lightdm (untested)

    Hi Mister_x,
    I can't find the lightdm directory and also I think I should have mentioned this earlier there is no desktop installed it boots up to a screen saying:

    Kali GNU/Linux Rolling az tty1
    az login:
