Re: Fedora 10 login screen and terminal windows

Hi Margret
try using a bold font (Edit/Preferences/General)

Another complaint I have is with the terminal windows. When I am using black lettering on a white background, the black lettering look more like gray. With my aging eyes I would really like to have the lettering a real black. I have played with the "color" terminal window settings, but haven't seen an improvement.

            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.
