[SOLVED] new users not appearing in xdm

Postby echo6 » Sun Dec 24, 2006 14:05

I used KUser to add some new users to my desktop box, why do they not appear on the xdm login screen?

You have to uncheck disable user box when making users with Kuser.

Did you really mean xdm?Or kdm which is mostly default with sabayon?

If you are using kdm you have to edit the /usr/kde/3.5/share/config/kdm/kdmrc line 42 (press F11 for showing linenumbers).Change "MinShowUID=1000" to "MinShowUID=xxx",where xxx is the lowest uid you have on your system for normal users.You can see the uid in the first column in Kuser.

Thanks both.

The default setting in Kuser is to enable users, editing the kdm config file to the default new user uid 5xx did the trick :-)
