Support case where username is manually entered but local users are shown in user list
In our configuration, nearly all users are granted access to the system via pam. The User Accounts dialog in Settings shows only a single user which was created at install time...and I'm not sure where from, because we preseed "d-i passwd/make-user boolean false" to try and inhibit the initial user account.
We control access with pam_krb5 in common-auth, and pam_access in common-account, and we want all users passed by that method to be able to log in (and pam_access is using netgroups to decide which users should be permitted).
So, in this world, I have one account known to the Accounts Manager, and it's the only one which lightdm will let me use: I get no "other user" dialog of any kind. This is a serious bug.
We have the standard unity-greeter.conf and access.conf in /etc/lightdm (though the latter is supposedly unused). Our lightdm.conf contains this:
