How do I make GDM present a field in which to enter the username/password rather than this **** user list? (That **** is supposed to be the word d a m n .)
The closest I’ve been able to get is to disable the user list and be left with no at all to way to log in until I logged on a text only session and reverted the setting. Which is appalling.
I’ve tried these commands
gconftool-2 --direct --config-source xml:readwrite:/etc/gconf/gconf.xml.defaults --type bool --set /apps/gdm/simple-greeter/disable_user_list true
sudo -u gdm gconftool-2 --set --type boolean /apps/gdm/simple-greeter/disable_user_list true
I think one had no effect, the other disabled the list but left me with no way to enter a username/password. I can’t remember which command did which. I can’t be bothered to check because it requires logging in/out yet again and I’m fed up playing around with this right now.
