Trying to disable "switch user"?

Postby Gort on Mon Apr 18, 2011 4:02 pm

Hi All

I am trying to disable "switch user" option on logout. I have used gconf-editor to set:
Code: Select all
desktop/gnome/lockdown/disable_user_switching

This seems what I am looking for but it has no effect. Is there something else that I am supposed to set?

Thanks

Hi Gort.

I guess it has to do with running 'sudo passwd root' command and activating the root account (something
which is not recommended to do, specially in Debian-based systems). Before running that command you
only needed to edit your own settings. Now, you have to run 'su' and give your root passwd and then run
'gconf-editor' to achieve what you want.
