I would like to know how to autologin as root on mint 17.1?
I've been able to login as root from the login screen (by enabling root access in login window settings and changing the theme to clouds).
But I have been unable to auto login (meaning that I don't have to enter my password).
I tried editing
/etc/mdm/mdm.conf, and writing:
but that doesn't work (works for normal accounts though).
Does anyone have clue how to do it? I'm doing this just for testing so please don't tell me its not a good idea. I know its not a good idea to be root and I am doing it for research purpose only.
