its on the wiki
It's gotten quite a bit worse, usability wise, I think.
Oh, and if you find out how to change the background image for the screensaver login then please let me know. I've looked in vain for instructions on how to get rid of the ugly green background that comes as default.
The GDM wiki page gives instructions for that, basically running gnome-appearance-properties as the gdm user.
How do you get around this:
gdm:x:120:120:Gnome Display Manager:/var/lib/gdm:/sbin/nologin
su, gksu say account is not available. Do you just change the :sbin/nologin part? How -- safely? I've never messed with something like that before.
