Wouldn't it be better to keep gdm3 and customize it?
Interesting. Is the presence and structure of those configuration
files documented anywhere? Was this mentioned in the release notes?
I'll admit I didn't even try to RTFM to before I asked. I just
assumed that if it was intuitive to use and had a simple gui in gdm,
it should have at least that much user friendliness in the
replacement, gdm3. Clearly I was wrong and we've returned to the days
of editing configuration files by hand as the preferred mode of system
administration. Such is life!
PS: I understand the argument that the GNOME upstream folks have moved
on and do not support gdm anymore. I further understand the argument
that Debian can't go-it alone without upstream support.
But I don't have to like the result! /^;
