• lightdm-webkit2-greeter & manual login


    Hi all,

    I am having trouble configuring lightdm and lightdm-webkit2-greeter to hide the list of users and allow me to manually login.
    in /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf I have the following settings:

    [Seat:*]
    ...
    greeter-hide-users=true
    greeter-show-manual-login=true
    ...
    

    However, I still only see the list of users and no possibility to manually login.
    Is this not possible with webkit2-greeter or do I need any additional setting, for example in lightdm-webkit2-greeter.conf ?
    I could not find any documentation about the settings available for lightdm-webkit2-greeter.conf.

    BTW, with the same settings and choosing greeter-session=lightdm-gtk-greeter I get a manual login. But the gtk-greeter is not as pretty as the webkit2-greeter. Maybe there is an alternative theme for gtk-greeter that fits with the overall antergos style?

    Thanks in advance for any hints.

  • Hi, The default theme does not currently support manual login. I am not aware of any themes that do support it other than the simple theme which is also included by default. Just change the theme in the config file to: simple. Cheers!
