View Full Version : [ubuntu] Changing session type when loggin in without password

September 26th, 2010, 08:35 PM
I am unable to change session type when not requiring passord on login.

How requiring password was changed:

System/Administration/Users and Groups
Clicked on my User
Clicked "Change" next to "Password: Asked on login"
Checked the checkbox for "Don't ask for password on login"
OK'd, everything

Please try this yourself as it might be hard to understand. But the option to change session type (ie: Gnome failsafe instead of reguar Gnome) is only visable along side with the password field.

Is it possible to make the session type setting visable without requiering password on login?

I don't think so. What you're asking for is located on the GDM login screen, and I don't know of any other way to access the GDM login screen than by, well... logging in.

But is it possible to pause during the gdm loggin screen for any other reasons than passwords?

Not that I'm aware of, no.
