configuration in man page

Bug #245166 reported by DonQuichote on 2008-07-03
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
gdm (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: gdm

In the man page, the path to the configuration file /etc/gdm/gdm.conf is only given as a possibility, and no reference is made of the override file /etc/gdm/gdm.conf-custom, which is the preferred place to put custom settings in (as far as I know). Attached is an updated man page.
