Description Martin Simon 2012-08-08 08:47:50 EDT
Description of problem:
If I have only one user account, the primary one, Switch User menu item in gnome-shell menu (the right one behind my account name)

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add and remove several user accounts
Actual results:
The 'Switch User' menu item visibility is not synchronized with actual state. It's invisible after user account is removed, does not matter how many accounts left, and it's visible if there is only one (primary) account..

Expected results:
It should be visible if there is 2 or more accounts, otherwise it should be invisible, right?

At least part of this is an AccountsService issue[0].

This request was not resolved in time for the current release.
Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if still desired, for consideration in
the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

this works well in 3.14
Comment 7 Martin Simon 2015-09-02 08:16:15 EDT
I've re-tested this with gnome-shell-3.14.4-26.el7.x86_64 and control-center-3.14.5-8.el7.x86_64. According to my results and comment 5, the behavior seems to be correct. The switch user button appears just fine.
