I only recently joined the gdm-list - if my question has already been
answered somewhere, please accept my apologies.
I'm currently working on a customization of a Debian Squeeze
installation for an upcoming rollout in an university.

Whatever I've derived from gdm and tested so far does not work with gdm3.
Under gdm, running gconf-editor as root, navigating to
/apps/gdm/greeter-config, changing the value of
"disable_restart_buttons" from false to true, right-clicking the entry
and selecting "Set as default" will remove the shutdown/restart buttons
on the login screen.
I've successfully tested this Fedora15/gdm, DebianLenny/gdm and Ubuntu
11.04/gdm by changing this directy in gconf-editor and/or copying the
%gconf settings file and copying it to the appropriate location.

and the pointer to /usr/share/gdm/gdm.schemas does not provide any
Does anybody have any experience with customizing gdm3?
Any hint would be very welcome.
