Description Matthias Clasen 2008-04-03 10:26:30 EDT
if I pick "Other" from the user switcher applet, while automatic login is enabled in gdm, I end up on a login screen with the automatic login timer ticking. Thats not right. I guess automatic login should only ever run on the first vt. Relatedly, we talked about changing the user switcher applet to only show currently logged in users (without the then redundant checkbox) plus "Other", since we punted on preselecting the right user...

I actually thought about this and decided it was ok. We really only enable the timed login for live cds and kiosk like things. In that case if for some reason you end up on the greeter you really do want to get sent back to the session after a while. The only show logged in users is rawhide today.

Oh, so if I let the automatic login run to the end, it'll bring me back to my orignal session...yeah, may be ok then. Just something to note somewhere, I guess. Longer-term, in a multi-seat future, do we want automatic login to be tied to specific seats, or be able to specify different configurations per-seat ?
