Hello,

is there a way to force autologin as specific user based on the display kdm is running on?

Thanks.

Check out /usr/share/config/kdm/kdmrc
Near the end of the file
Try something like this:
Code:
# Core config for 1st local display
[X-:0-Core]
# The VT the X-server should run on; auto-assign if zero, don't assign if -1.
# Better leave it zero and use ServerVTs.
# Default is 0
#ServerVT=7
# Enable automatic login. USE WITH EXTREME CARE!
# Default is false
AutoLoginEnable=true
# If true, auto-login after logout. If false, auto-login is performed only
# when a display session starts up.
# Default is false
#AutoLoginAgain=true
# The delay in seconds before automatic login kicks in.
# Default is 0
#AutoLoginDelay=10
# The user to log in automatically. NEVER specify root!
# Default is ""
AutoLoginUser=dirtbag
# The password for the user to log in automatically. This is NOT required
# unless the user is logged into a NIS or Kerberos domain. If you use this
# option, you should "chmod 600 kdmrc" for obvious reasons.
# Default is ""
#AutoLoginPass=secret!
