I had tried flashing my card using the method described on their website
but even that didn't work. I'll try testing it with the new changes made by

I will update the Debian/Raspberry_pi page with the method I used to add
the automatic login feature. I basically configured the lightdm.conf file
while the image was building, will share the configuration.
