Greetings,

can anyone recommend a lightdm theme without users list?
the current supplied ones have users list and trying to disable them in config doesn't work.

Thanks.

I thought that "greeter-hide-users=true" under seat configuration -section(s) can do it?

Changing the theme may not hide the user list. What Zucca propose may do it. Stay to see if you will be able to type a username and login with this parameter on.

/usr/sbin/lightdm --version:
lightdm 1.16.7
grep -E '^[[:blank:]]*\[Seat|^[[:blank:]]*greeter-hide' /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf:
[Seat:*]
greeter-hide-users=true
[Seat:seat0]
[Seat:seat1]
... and it does work on my setup.

Code:

dagg@NCC-5001-D ~ $ lightdm --version
lightdm 1.19.4
dagg@NCC-5001-D ~ $ grep -E '^[[:blank:]]*\[Seat|^[[:blank:]]*greeter-hide' /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf
greeter-hide-users=true
[Seat:*]

as said, instead of text box, I have a drop down list of all users.
I want to revert it to text box.

I think that setting needs to be under the seat -section. Try that?
