http://forums.fedoraforum.org – Hello all: A longtime Ubuntu/Debian/*BSD user here giving Fedora 11 a try. I have discovered a small problem, it appears that gdmsetup is not installed. * There's no option under Gnome's 'Preferences -> Main Menu' editor utility to add it to the Administration menu. * There's no option (as in Debian) to select a login session titled "Configure GDM" or something similar, supply the root password and bring up the GDM login preferences utility directly. * There appears to be no 'gdmsetup' in root's path. * and... there appears to be a bug filed for it. It appears to be an upstream problem that's existed since 2008! Am I correct in assuming that gdmsetup is not installed and/or working in Fedora Core 11? Anyone else have this problem? Is there a known workaround? I can't be the only one who wants to change some of GDM's settings. (HowTos)
