  1. That’s a really good idea. I’ve always wanted account setup under GDM 🙂
    (It would be especially useful to log in as a guest).

    I hope this starts a trend! We need a new GDM to support all these new login sessions…

  2. The one thing that is tricky about greeters is accessibility. How can someone who is blind still read the information on the bootup screen? How can they change the session?

    To do that, they need Orca to be running when the GDM screen comes up.

    You might want to keep that in mind as you continue with this work. Thanks for your efforts, Martin.

  3. @Jim: Yes, I believe Orca is running, or easily switch on, since it’s a full gnome session that’s running. But I don’t yet have any code to switch it on.

  4. @Jay – I do have some plans to finish up the functionality, it’s fairly easy to add in since the python classes are flexible enough to do anything with the gdm services.

    If you’re interested in helping with some patches, I’d be very interested in seeing what you have planned.

    The api_guide was actually from the dbus introspection, I’ve had a bug report out for that upstream and they’re going to improve the code that deals with it.
