Try adding this to the [security] stanza of /etc/gdm/custom.conf:


Might also try this in /etc/gdm/custom.conf:


Do you find any .dmrc files with this command?

updatedb && locate .dmrc

I tried adding the Relax line and restarting gdm - did not fix the problem. I added the CheckDir line and again restarted gdm  (using gdm stop and gdm restart - both of which return "GDM already running. Aborting!" so its probably not working. I ran the update & locate - it found a large number of .dmrc files all except mine being in the user's /home directory. Mine is located in /oldhome and it will not let me copy or move it, seemingly no matter what I do to the permissions or ownership - either as myself or as root. Any further thoughts on what I might try?
