I tried gdm-2.20.1-5 but I still couldn't get it to work- but then maybe I had already screwed the system up with all my changes.|
Out of curiosity how did you get it to show the chooser? Was it under the action menu with the power button icon? I tried editing the config file directly and enabled the xdmcp, chooser, and set the chooser program. Is this correct? Or is there another setting I need to enable?
Also I did this in editing the /usr/share/gdm/default.conf file - am I editing the right file?
Thanks for the info.
