i'm working with yocto (krogoth) project on the imx6 processor. I created the sato image where a GNOME desktop manager is used.

I added a password for root user and add a new user from yocto:

#first delete "debug-tweaks"

EXTRA_USERS_PARAMS = "usermod -P password root; \
                      useradd -P 123456 myUser;"

it worked.


Now, i want to boot matchbox-desktop with "myUser" and not as a root, there is any procedure to do on yocto?

I beleve that is sufficient because i tried to run a new  matchbox-desktop istance with myUser, all internal application desktop running with "myUser". That's what i want.


Is necessary to run xserver as a "myUser"? In this case, how it do?
