I am not sure if anybody has helped you with this since this mail, but your best bet is probably a casper script. This is how lightdm autologin is done, same for KDE etc. A script in scripts/casper-bottom is the way to go. Either in the casper package, or another package for the live environment that places the script in the initramfs under scripts/casper-bottom.
