Auto Login not working with "no desktop"

Not sure if it’s intended or not, since terminal only installs don’t include a desktop/login manager to automate, but when you do a console-only install and select to automatically login, it doesn’t (looking do do a steam-deck like experience so I need it to auto login to console and start gamescope and Steam). Obviously I can set it up manually, but I don’t know if it’s supposed to work or maybe there needs to be a note in the installer somewhere that autologin doesn’t work for console setups (or maybe there already is and I missed it in my rush to install).

Auto login is configured in the DM so it is intentional that it doesn’t work if you don’t install one.

Thought it might be that but I figured I’d mention it anyway. Didn’t see any other mentions when I searched, so now if someone else looks they’ll find something. :grin:

You can use this as a starting point to configure/ setup autologin without a DM.
