# How does GDM configuration work?

There go to the very least 2 means to set up GDM I recognize of:

1. is the /etc/gdm/custom.conf documents that can be either hand modified or modified throu GUI gdmsetup. Autologin and also timed login are set up below
2. are the gconf schemas under/ apps/gdm/ Those can be edite with gconf - editor running either as origin or as a regular customer. I presume editing and enhancing it as an informal customer does not have any kind of influence given that GDM runs as origin. Audio to name a few points can be switched off below

Are there otherwise? GDM rejects to allow me autologin (on a fresh Natty install) (it does not request for password, it just desires that I select myself as a customer at the login screen despite the fact that I am the only customer on this computer system).

Various other intriguing point is that also if I remove GDM, its setups (consisting of the custom.conf) do not transform. Consequently there appears no other way to reset GDM is setups.

BTW: my custom.conf is as adheres to (attracted is my customer):

[daemon]
DefaultSession=gnome


Edit: Ha, possibly it is not a configuration concern nevertheless yet a bug: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gdm/+bug/753707
