NAME

nodm - X display manager for automatic logins  

SYNOPSIS

nodm [options]  

DESCRIPTION

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.  

OPTIONS

--help
print this help message
--version
print nodm's version number
--session=cmd
run cmd instead of /usr/sbin/nodm (use for testing)
