0.7.9 Linux release from ayufan
#27
Oh, woops.  But look at the source of raspi-config, the autologin parts. https://github.com/RPi-Distro/raspi-config  Armbian has something similar, maybe derived from it.  You might even be able to copy out the code and make it run, it's just a bash script.  Or manually do what the script does.

There are 2 different autologin scenarios for console and GUI.  Checking for autologin:
Code:
get_autologin() {
 if [ $(get_boot_cli) -eq 0 ]; then
   # booting to CLI - check the autologin in getty or initd */
   if grep -q autologin /etc/systemd/system/getty.target.wants/getty@tty1.servi
ce ; then  
     echo 0
   else
     echo 1
   fi
 else    
   # booting to desktop - check the autologin for lightdm */
   if grep -q "^autologin-user=" /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf ; then
     echo 0
   else
     echo 1
   fi
 fi
}

Setting autologin:
Code:
     B4*)
       if [ -e /etc/init.d/lightdm ]; then
         systemctl set-default graphical.target
         ln -fs /etc/systemd/system/autologin@.service /etc/systemd/system/getty.target.wants/getty@tty1.service
         sed /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf -i -e "s/^\(#\|\)autologin-user=.*/autologin-user=$SUDO_USER/"
         disable_raspi_config_at_boot
       else
         whiptail --msgbox "Do 'sudo apt-get install lightdm' to allow configuration of boot to desktop" 20 60 2
         return 1
       fi
       ;;
     *)
       whiptail --msgbox "Programmer error, unrecognised boot option" 20 60 2
       return 1
That $SUDO_USER gets populated with who runs sudo.  If you're already root and you run raspi-config without sudo the user name is an empty string, it doesn't work.  But root can run sudo just fine.  Except root autologin is blocked elsewhere.
