Hello all,

Is there any way to get Raspbian GUI login prompt/window? Needing something similar to screenshot.

  • 1. First if not already done, you must use sudo raspi-config and set boot to desktop then reboot.

    2. Open a LXterminal then do:
    sudo leafpad /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf

    3. Find this line: (approximately line 78 in file)
    autologin-user=pi

    4. Comment out (disable) that line by inserting a # like this:
    #autologin-user=pi

    5. Save and exit then reboot.
Note: If you ever go back and do set to desktop with raspi-config again, (Step 1), then the changes to lightdm.conf will revert back to the default (no login). If so simply redo the edit again - (Steps 2-5).

Thank you so much! This worked (see screenshot) and also added a new user account w/o sudo.

1.- Is there a way to set the default environment to Xsession only option? (see screenshot)
2.- Also on the screenshot is there a way to change the missing icon pic above the word raspberrypi? (see screenshot)
3.- Was wondering if there is any way to restrict what programs users have access too?

Thanks

Thank you so much! For some reason, I had to search for a quite a few keywords before finding this simple solution.
