Using fedora-8's gdm-2.20.5-3.fc8.x86_64 it was possible to login without
touching the mouse.   Input focus was in a username text box.

With Rawhides latest gdm its necessary to first use the mouse to select a user.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.(gdm login screen)
Actual results:
need to use mouse

Expected results:
no need for mouse to login

focus should be such that you can just type the username and press enter.  that
doesn't work?
Comment 2 John Ellson 2008-07-29 18:05:57 EDT
Oh, I don't know why you have to hide the input text field?
but OK, that works.
Comment 3 John Ellson 2008-07-31 17:16:21 EDT
I take that back, it doesn't always work.  In fact, it doesn't work on the first
gdm screen after a reboot.
    1. reboot
    (don't touch the mouse)
    2. type in a user name and enter, or just enter for the current name

Nothing happens.

Looks like we've had some initial focus regression since f-9.  Dave mentioned
seeing it on IRC, too, so i'm adding him to the cc list.
Comment 5 Matthias Clasen 2008-08-01 13:02:33 EDT
Looking at the code, I only ever see us grab the focus to the auth-entry.
There probably needs to be some gtk_widget_grab_focus (user_chooser) at the
appropriate spot.
