I don't have any problems with X automatically restarting after I kill it. I have autologin configured and then I start X using {{ic|startx}}. Maybe this user is running a graphical display manager or a default target of {{ic|graphical.target}}?<br>

Instructions here won't work

Basically nothing happens, I'm not logined automatically. -- Arokux (talk) 20:26, 22 September 2013‎ (UTC)

Please be more specific about your problem, if any - I can see that you made some edits to the page just a few hours later, so is the issue solved? -- Lahwaacz (talk) 12:28, 29 December 2013 (UTC)
this did not work for me either. I found that this did: http://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/42359/how-can-i-autologin-to-desktop-with-systemd update this page? --Wash (talk) 03:16, 2 October 2014 (UTC)
The page you provided links back to this page as a primary resource, so the instructions are virtually the same. What is the difference that this page is missing? -- Lahwaacz (talk) 20:31, 18 October 2014 (UTC)
Same here, I use the stackexchange page to get it working. The service file in the SE page has some differences with the one described in the wiki: the path is different and the service is not written from scratch but is a modified version of /usr/lib/systemd/system/getty@.service. I can sketch an update for this page if needs be. Jnbd (talk) 08:57, 25 October 2014 (UTC)
I still do not understand what is wrong with the instructions on this page, they work for me:
  1. (tty1) $ mkdir /etc/systemd/system/getty@tty2.service.d/
  2. (tty1) $ vim /etc/systemd/system/getty@tty2.service.d/autologin.conf and paste the suggested content, remember to edit the username.
  3. (tty1) $ systemctl daemon-reload
  4. (tty1) $ systemctl stop getty@tty2.service
Now, when I switch to tty2, I am automatically logged in.
