Fast User Switch Applet 1.0.0

Now rewritten and in GNOME CVS, the Fast User Switch Applet has reached version 1.0.0. It is 100% bug-free and has no needed features or improvements (making CVS kinda pointless, but hey :-)).

  1. Two questions:

    Every user I click on that isn’t logged in just takes me to a new GDM login screen (not with the user preselected or anything); the same as clicking on the “Login Screen” option. Is this the intended behaviour?

    Secondly, all the “system” users are there as well. Isn’t there a way to just list all “normal” users, like the GDM face browser does?

    Otherwise, this looks very promising. Now just to create a rotating desktop cube when switching, like OS X does. 😉

  2. Every user I click on that isn’t logged in just takes me to a new GDM login screen (not with the user preselected or anything); the same as clicking on the “Login Screen” option. Is this the intended behaviour?

    Yes, there is unfortunately no way at present to tell GDM what user to use.

    Secondly, all the “system” users are there as well. Isn’t there a way to just list all “normal” users, like the GDM face browser does?

    Well, it should be doing that already. What file did you pass to the –with-gdm-config configure flag?

  3. I didn’t pass anything, because I didn’t know I was supposed to pass anything. I have rebuilt the applet using –with-gdm-config=/etc/gdm/gdm.conf, and it only displays the relevant users now. Thank you!

  4. Sorry, I’ll add better instructions to the README for the next release.
