Hello Lisi,

much work for such an easy task. 'rungetty' is in my opinion good for 
autologin in the console. For the autostart of a user straight into the 
windowmanager you can manage it for example with 'gdm = GNOME Display 
Manager'. In his settings you can specify one user for autologin.

Just my 2¢
