I'm trying to build a custom debian live CD using Will Haley's article with xfce4 and lightdm as a graphical desktop environment and calamares as a default installer but i can't set the live CD auto login for my live user because the system is booting to lightdm login window and asking for username and password, so how can I use the live-config package to configuring live CD to set and use a custom username and password ?

  • Have you configured the autologin settings in the lightdm configuration file of your Live boot environment? – kemotep Dec 20 '18 at 18:21

you just need modify your config file in the mastering-isodir

$ cat /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf

autologin-user="put here your live user name"
