Try This


No nope, edited /etc/init/xbmc.conf with the instructions and verified after reboot.

still no auto login.
possibly because it was an xbmclive version that got updated/upgraded?

even tried manual start.
Code:
[email protected]:~$ sudo service xbmc start
start: Job failed to start


edit: for now my way around it is to startx then start xbmc from there.
any help?

doesnt work in 10.0.4

There is no Login Screen option
System -> Administration -> Login Screen
system >profiles and you can manage logins from there. top lef enable/disable autologin and well its not a complicated Dialog.

if your talking about Linux autologin well then google.

run the following from a terminal or alt+f2 if you're a gui person.
Code:
gdmsetup

I've just figured this out for Ubuntu 10.10

You need to auto start XBMC this way:

System->Preferences>Startup Appplications

On the Tab Startup Programs klik <add>

Now you have 3 input fields:

Name
Command
Comment

Name: you can choose, but XBMC would be the obvious choice.
Command: Click the <Browse> button and navigate to "File System>USR>BIN> scroll all the way down until you find a single entry called xbmc. Select it.
The line in the field Command should now read: /usr/bin/xbmc
Comment: you can leave blank.

DONE!!

I do assume you have alread got Ubuntu to login automagically. It takes a little while longer then a Live install, but it works!

Sad
sorry guys this is a bit offtopic has zero to do with ppas. go here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0_BpDe0tqak and here http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1466177 or wherever just refrain form poluting a already complicated thread with non helpfull information regarding its original intent.
I appreciate the help, but neither of those are helpful or things I havent tried.
Guess I'll figure it out on my own or wait till Eden Live version. Oo
Does someone have a clue why I get;

The following packages have been kept back:
linux-generic linux-headers-generic linux-image linux-image-generic xbmc
xbmc-bin xbmc-live

upgrade. It used to upgrade but no more...help please...
