The examples are to small to read?

Did you click on the thumbnails!:slight_smile:

rotfl! Sorry, couldn’t resist!

Sorry for posting in old thread. Had to ask this!
Are the GNOME 3.4.2 user settings compatible with YaST account manager.
i.e. Will the changes made through YaST gel well with changes in GNOME and vice versa.
Hope they use the same settings file :slight_smile:

You tell me…

Does an alteration in gnome require admin password? If yes, then I guess the change will be the same

Yes on clicking the unlock button in the below screen it does authenticate the user

if systemd did not change this*, I know two places where one can configure suche thing:

  • /etc/sysconfig/displaymanager DISPLAYMANAGER_AUTOLOGIN="". If empty, no auto login. Can also be changed via YaST/system
  • in the kde systemconfig, login screen, tab “commodities”

but at least a friend of mine just said that He had problem and he found a solution but couldn’t explain what to me, so mai be this is not all the anwser (openSUSE 13.1)

  • sometime systemd do not anymore use the /etc/sysconfig variables
