I cannot seem to hide some users (or select specific ones) on the greeter.
I set up the /etc/lightdm/users.conf; at first it worked --
partially: some, but not all of the "hidden-users" did not show up.
Then, some upgrade re-installed accounts-service. That completely undid
it! Now several usernames that do not represent real people are back on
my greeter. It doesn't limit using the system, of course, it just looks
Evidently, I won't be able to keep accounts-service off my machine -- it
might even have some use.
So: can someone please advise me -- what info does the greeter request
from the accounts-service, and how can the accounts-service be
configured to return only selected usernames?
