Description

Hi,

xubuntu's gdm doesn't automatically log you back in after 20sec if you manually log out.

known bug: https://bugs.launchpad.net/mythbuntu/+bug/463314

solution unknown.

The only logical solution to me is to remove the logout option from the menu. I'm not really sure this is a big deal since a reboot will log someone back in. Maybe in future versions we can customize the gdm background to have the user/password in it.

eeek, no thanks.

sure, or xubuntu/we fix the bug. :) (I tried various things like hacking gdm.schemas directly, but no luck)

Still present in 5.5beta4 I suggest that we remove this, since it seems like the default behavior for Xubuntu...

As suggested by kalxas, this seems to be default xubuntu behaviour, so I resolving this as "won't fix".

I'll suggest that long term a work around would be to replace the background image of the login screen with an image that has the username/password on it so people don't think they are locked out if they don't know it.

yeah, that's probably the best solution.

I think it is better termed that this is a known bug in Xubuntu 11.04, rather than this is the default behavior for Xubuntu.
