I think this should work:

Code: [Select]
~/.dmrc

[Desktop]
Language=de_DE.UTF-8   # change to your default lang
Layout=de   nodeadkeys # change to your keyboard layout

If you run gdmsetup as root, you can configure auto login from there.

Read review,not bad. Liked nightflier response about security,I think reviewer clicked right past. Nice going nightflier. For all the developers, 7.1 STD "works for me."

Not bad. I have not tried to skip the user and password creation page during install. Could he have just clicked through without entering anything?
That may be what he did... Although it says he logged in as user and then changed the root password... I wonder if his user account had a ow or not.

We got a review of Vector 7.1 in Distrowatch

It seems the reviewer did not read through the installer though and ended up not setting a root password, characterized as a 'security concern'.  Also, people obsessed with debian's ton of *-dev pkgs look at our few thousand packages available and think we dont have enough... This reviewer also mentions that we only have 3 thousand some pkgs, but interestingly enough, the thing has everything he needs on boot ;)

Other than that, and calling us 'visually dated', I think it's a fair review.  See for yourself!.

Thanks macondo for the response.

It could be a solution for myself, but I'm setting up a laptop for my mother and I want to make it as easy as possible for her to use.

I'll find a solution to boot directly into the WM.

thanks :-)

Thanks Macondo,

I loaded icewm on my lenovo ideapad N586, the machine without the keyboard mouse-button. I got through part 1 so far.

It would be nice to have texlive, a huge program, in the repositories.  It is better than tetex.  However, its no big deal as its pretty easy to download texlive from the texlive site.
