Add the below:

when i reboot the vim3 , it doesn’t work, still need me input login name and passwd.
i use VIM desktop OS image.
can you give me right solution?

Hello @joseph123

I test autologin in VIM3, it works and my image is vim3-ubuntu-20.04-gnome-linux-4.9-fenix-1.5-230425.img.xz

Which image do you use?

yes, vim3-ubuntu-20.04-gnome-linux-4.9-fenix-1.5-230425-emmc.img.xz , same with yours.
so why not work well on my side?
can you list your detail steps?

Just follow the doc:

sudo vi /usr/share/lightdm/lightdm.conf.d/50-greeter-wrapper.conf

and replace the file with


then reboot. And it works.

khadas@Khadas:~$ cat /usr/share/lightdm/lightdm.conf.d/50-greeter-wrapper.conf

then reboot vim3, but issue still happen.

@joseph123 for Serial/SSH logins, you need to follow the appropriate guide:

Note from your screenshot you are seen using ttyS0, please follow the guide for it.

oh, yes, you are right.
i thought my gnome os image doesn’t need those instructions.
oh, misled me.
Strongly suggest khadas teams to modify
thanks Electr1 & Jocobe
