I'm really having a bad headache with this. I have PXE diskless clients booting open suse 11.2. The problem is this sec. policy, the user only has 3 tries for login with the correct user and pass, after the third try, the account blocks the user.
Just moved from Fedora 17 to a fresh install of Fedora 19. When I click on "Switch user" in Gnome, it locks the screen, but doesn't switch to a new virtual terminal with the login screen, like it used to do in Fedora 17.
This is certainly not game-changing or life-altering, but a question about Ubuntu has been nagging at me.
Why is it that when a user locks the screen (or the screen is locked due to inactivity), the machine doesn't simply go straight to the login screen. The little dialogue that is shown has nothing to offer that the login screen doesn't have.
