Bug Description

If you select to automatically login during installation of 20160417 amd64 Ubuntu GNOME on first boot you're asked to login. Once logged in you'll find that the User UI setting is set to off. If you change it to on it then works properly.

This is due to incorrect paths in ubiquity point to the old /etc/gdm rather than /etc/gdm3

This requires a change in user-setup too, which will be imported in ubiquity.
