Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 430304
Login user selection is annoying when there are a number of users
Last modified: 2008-03-07 18:49:10 EST
Description of problem:
After upgrading to rawhide the number of users listed in the login screen
increased (so that its possible this is really a preexisting problem). When I
select a user to login in as the unselected users are removed one at a time and
then the window is shrunk also in discrete chunks with a noticeable delay
between each change. Besides the small increase in time to login, it is annoying
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Make sure there are about dozen accounts to login in as.
2. Double click on one of the users.
The login window is updated a dozen or so times in a chunky manner.
One update to the display.
The new method of starting with just other mitigates the problem I reported above.
I'll leave it open for now since you still might want to make it work faster in
the case where a lot of people share a desktop, but for my purposes the problem
is now moot.
Starting with just other is a bug, not a new method.
If the animation is not smooth or fast enough, that is a different problem.
well, initially it will start with "Other..." by design. that's not a bug.
There was a bug where it wouldn't ever grow beyond "Other..." as users were
picked, but that should be fixed now I think.
The point still stands though we need to fix the animation to not suck.
The long list of users should be fixed. I've opened a bug upstream for
