I have started running Jessie (Debian 8) with a LightDM/Xfce desktop on my HTPC after it grinding to a near-halt on W7. One of the things that I cannot get past is having to type the password -- not a normal thing to do for watching TV.
Following the instructions on the Debian Wiki I got as far as my login being automatically selected. But this still requires the password, and half-fixes like empty / trivial passwords are not allowed.
Is it possible to go straight to the Xfce session without login/password?
