I have found a solution not depending on any of those xdm/gdm/kdm.
The page with instructions was here:
How to make some user login automatically?
1. Add to the /etc/gettytab file the following strings:
test:\ - entry name, autologin will use this username;
al=test - autologin username;
ht - terminal has real tabs;
np - 8-bit chars;
(optional) sp#115200 - line speed;
2. Edit /etc/ttys file:
ttyv0 "/usr/libexec/getty test" cons25 on secure
Usual Pc changed with test.
Then created file /etc/rc.local
su - user_to_be_logged_in -c startx
I had found a similar solution for Slackware 13.1 with Xfce. Thanks
to all for your help.
