    Default How do I set default domain in login screen?

    I joined my computer to a Samba directory and I would like to have that domain as default in the login screen rather than <LOCAL> but I cannot figure how to do it.

    Does anyone know how to do it?

    Thanks in advance,

    Pancho

    Maybe nobody will ever need to know this but anyways here it goes:

    Edit /usr/share/kde4/config/kdm/kdmrc

    Add (or modify) to [X-*-Greeter] section

    DefaultUser=YOUR_DOMAIN\your_user
    PreselectUser=Default
    After reboot under "Domain:" your will read "YOUR_DOMAIN" and the your_user in your user textbox.

    If this procedure is deemed correct and recommended,

    I should think this should be submitted somewhere (maybe bugzilla as a feature?) to be considered for default. Like "That other OS" when a machine has been added to a Network Domain of any type, it should be assumed to always take precedence (as a preference) over any local machine logon.

    Would be a simple and easy modification to Source that should require minimal resources to implement, test/verify.

    IMO,
    Tony
