    Default How to autologin / auto startx / auto booting

    this is from (Micked) on the old forum and still works


    make you not have to type startx every time you boot, it goes right to desktop.
    Using this on backtrack 4 Pre Final persistent changes.


    Code:
    nano /root/.bash_profile
    enter:
    Code:
    startx
    ctrl+o #WriteOut (o=letter, NOT a zero)
    enter #save
    ctrl+x #Exit

    all done!! reboot and try it out.

    you can put all kind of things you want to autostart in this file, like me, I have put "start-network" and "wicd-client" so that I have working network every time I boot.

    Thanks lordplagueis

    That was useful for going straight into the GUI after logging in.

    never tried thoes myself but this will auto start you every boot (#/etc/init.d/wicd start) then (#update-rc.d wicd defaults) you'll never have to type them again

    Make sure that you put the start-network first then the startx
    That should solve your problem

    I think after staring the network you should have
    /etc/init.d/wicd start
    startx
    wicd-client

    @Alex2005

    Are you running those command as root? maybe you should add sudo infront of the commands...
