Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 449107
gdm doesn't use ~/.dmrc for Other.. users
Last modified: 2015-01-14 18:21:22 EST
Description of problem:
When Others.. is selected the ~/.dmrc of the user seems not used. Isn'it
possible to read the .dmrc between username and password and to use it ?
And how to empty the list of users listed by gdm ?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
connexion use the defaults language and session type
connexion use the ~/.dmrc if it exists
Same thing with Fedora 10. So with the disable_user_list option, users must always select their Language and Sessions if they don't use the defaults...

See bug 433649 comment 21
I've had the same problem with Fedora 9 and Fedora 10. Let me know if there's anything I should try.
I tried Fedora 11 Beta, and I'm pretty sure this bug had not been fixed. This has been stagnating for a long time, so I just added an upstream bug on GNOME's bugzilla (#577756).
It looks like gdm-2.26.0-7 included a patch to fix this. I'll try to test it soon.
I can confirm that gdm-2.26.0-7 fixes the problem.
Thanks for testing.
