Thank you for your suggestion.
I set up Debian Squeeze x86 again to test this. I've actually tried this
In /etc/gdm3/greeter.gconf-defaults add a line:
Unfortunately, this does not have any effect on the login screen. The
Suspend/Restart/ Shut Down options are still there.
Are there any additional steps that have to be taken? After su'ing to
root, adding the line you mentioned and saving the file, I just issued #
Other posts suggested the following additional steps:
-running "# dpkg-reconfigure gdm3" which returns "Scheduling reload of
GNOME Display Manager configuration: gdm3" but does nothing else
-reloading gdm3 via "# /etc/init/gdm3 reload" which returns "Scheduling
reload of GNOME Display Manager configuration: gdm3" but does nothing else
-restarting gdm3 via "#gdm3 service restart" which returns:
** (gdm3:2427: WARNING **: Failed to acquire org.gnome.DisplayManager
** (gdm3:2427: WARNING **: Could not acquire name; bailing out
but does nothing else
-restarting gdm3 via "# /etc/init/gdm3 restart" which of course breaks
my X session. Not even pressing Ctrl+Alt+Backspace does have any effect.
Ctrl+Alt+Del will reboot Debian but even after dpgk-reconfigure, gdm3
reload, the Suspend/Restart/Shut Down options are still available on the
I find this very frustrating, especially since setting the line
"/apps/gdm/simple-greeter/disable_user_list" to true in
/etc/gdm3/greeter.gconf-defaults actually does work - after enabling it
and restarting, the user is required to enter his username instead of
just clicking on an available user on the loginscreen.
Do you have any other suggestion?
I'm running a default installation of Debian Squeeze, x86, Kernel
2.6.32-5-686-bigmem, gdm3 is version 2.30.5
Debian was installed this morning, all upgrade applied.
