Description Dave Malcolm 2004-10-15 18:20:15 EDT
I'm always mistyping my username at the login screen, hitting a second key near the return key as I press return. If I mistype my username at the login screen, I have to hit return for the password entry, and endure a few seconds delay. I'd like some kind of "Cancel" or "Back" feature (perhaps by pressing Escape) that lets me go back from the password entry screen and enter my username correctly.

We had this for a while in gdm. I liked it too.

Themes can already have a "cancel" button now, but escape doesn't work. We used to have a patch that added the feature, but we've since removed it. We should dig it out of the archives and get it upstream i guess.

Comment 5 Matthias Clasen 2007-03-30 09:31:48 EDT
