       nodm - X display manager for automatic logins


       nodm [options]


       nodm  is  a  minimal  display  manager that simply logs in as a given user and starts an X
       session, without asking for username or password.

       On a normal computer, using nodm is a big security issue  because  it  would  give  anyone
       access to the computer.

       However,  there  are  cases  where  automatic  login is needed: for example in an embedded
       system such as a mobile phone, or in a kiosk setup, or in a control panel  for  industrial
       machinery.   For  those  cases,  nodm  is  simple  to setup, lightweight, and it should do
       exactly the right thing.
