Auto login

How to automatically login to the Raspberry Pi without entering username and password.

Edit /etc/inittab, the file that controls the startup initialization process of the Pi. Do a “What is /etc/inittab” in Google for a far more robust answer on the specifics of what it does. The line you look for may look a little bit different depending on raspbian version.

$ sudo nano /etc/inittab

In that file, comment out this line by typing this symbol ‘#’ before it:

1:2345:respawn:/sbin/getty 115200 tty1

Like so:

#1:2345:respawn:/sbin/getty 115200 tty1

And place this line under it:

1:2345:respawn:/bin/login -f pi tty1 </dev/tty1 >/dev/tty1 2>&1

Replacing “pi” with the user you want auto-logged in on power-up. Reboot the Pi, and watch it auto-login. Magic.

UPDATE! For Jesse open raspi-config: $sudo raspi-config
