Bug Description

Running on:
Description: Ubuntu 13.04
Release: 13.04-BETA2
(Ubuntu Gnome, 64-bit)

In /etc/gdm/custom.conf, I have the following config:
[greeter]
# Only include selected logins in the greeter
IncludeAll = false

which should remove the user list from the login screen. Unfortuantely it doesn't work. Also adding a specific Exclude for each user will not work.

The only fix right now is to have this file:
/etc/dconf/db/gdm.d/01-local-settings

###
# local system-wide customizations

[org/gnome/login-screen]
disable-user-list=true
###

then running dconf update.

The greeter settings in custom.conf are obsolete and no longer available in the gnome-shell greeter.

Only disable-user-list is available, Filtering specific users has not been implemented AFAIK.

The correct way to do this is to make an .override file in /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas
