I'm setting up a computer running Ubuntu for my mom, so that she will be able to read e-mail, surf the Internet and use Skype. She is the only person accessing the computer.
Is it possible to set it up so that she doesn't have to log in?

Using the GUI:
In the system menu, go to login manager. In there, select a user and select "log in automatically". You can also specify how long do you want to wait before logging in as that user.
PS: I am not in front of an Ubuntu machine right now, and I am mostly quoting from memory. So there might be subtle differences.
