Re: [orca-list] [u-a-dev] at-spi at gdmlogin - broken or disabled on purpose?

Hi Francesco:

I can confirm that accessible login works with Solaris Express Community
Edition, and that it doesn't work with Ubuntu.  I suspect this might be
an Ubuntu bug.

Hope this helps,

I have been told by the gnome maintainer of gdm, that when the plain 
greeter (in other words gdmlogin) is used, at-spi (to be precise: 
/usr/lib/at-spi/at-spi-registryd) should be automatically started in 
the gdm session. (It should be started even if Assistive Technology 
is not enabled)

But it does not start automatically on my machine; it also does not 
start on another persons machine.

However, when I define a gesture, to start 
/usr/lib/at-spi/at-spi-registryd, it does start and afterwards I can 
use applications requiring at-spi during the login session.

So my question: Is this a bug specific to Ubuntu (at least in gutsy), 
or has it been changed on purpose in the Ubuntu distribution.

If the former is the case, I am going to file a bug against gdm in Ubuntu.

Thanks in advance.
