Hey guys, I'm hoping to set up a machine as a home LAN server, I'm relatively new to Linux but I've been doing okay until now.

 

The way I want this to run is for everything to be managed through remote desktop, which is working fine. But if I want to start the machine I have to haul it all the way over to where my monitor and peripherals are, I'm being stopped at the login. Everything before and after that is automated.

 

It's currently Debian 8.2 with LXDE. I've tried editing /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf but it's not working so far. This is what I've currently done to it:

autologin-user=rk64
autologin-user-timeout=0

Thanks in advance to anyone who can help.

 

EDIT: Solved. I don't know how exactly, all I did was add a space before and after the =.
