You haven't said which display manager you're using. If it's gdm, the
above instructions presumably should work (I wouldn't know).

Odds are good if it is gdm changes won't take effect till you reboot
or run some obscure undocumented tool to make gdm reread the
config info.

I installed gconf-editor and ran the program.     There was no
disable_user_list box

/etc/gdm/custom.conf  initially contained


gconftool-2 --config-source xml:readwrite:/etc/gconf.xml.defaults --direct --type bool --set /apps/adm/simplgreeter/disable_user_list true


However after a reboot,  I still have the first two accounts showing up with the "Other" login on the login screen.   /etc/gdm/custom.conf has no changes.  When I use gconf-editor, I still see the same entries as before I issued the gconftool-2 command.

ya, it didnt work for me either, I tried everything.  So now I just used SLiM and dont need GDM at all.  There is no user list and its faster.
