Everytime since a few days (I don't remember exactly if this happens with the last upgrade or a previous one, but I remember it uses to work correctly).

User list empty when it should list the only user, me.

What does the following command report?

 gconftool-2 -g /apps/gdm/simple-greeter/disable_user_list

Are you experiencing the sound glitches or error messages reported in bug 555593?

Comment 2 Erwan LE PENNEC 2010-02-23 09:48:37 UTC
The command
 gconftool-2 -g /apps/gdm/simple-greeter/disable_user_list
I have tried to launch it as root and as myself with the same results.

I do note experience the errors of bug 555593.

This is very likely a dupe of bug 555593.  I'm going to dupe it, but if the update for that bug doesn't fix your problem, we can investigate more.
