Hi,

I've been working on the Ubuntu GNOME Remix. I'm trying to figure out
how to set GDM to autologin in the live environment, but not have
those changes persist after installation.

d-i/source/user-setup/user-setup-apply seems to have code to do this,
but I don't know how to run it.

Basically, I need these three lines added to /etc/gdm/custom.conf

[daemon]
AutomaticLoginEnable = true
AutomaticLogin = ubuntu


Thanks,
Jeremy
