In Karmic, we can solve the user-switching issue by diverting/replacing /usr/lib/indicator-session/indicator-users/service with /bin/true or something. This causes the "users" part of the menu (including 'Guest Session' and 'Switch User') to not be there.

OK, so /etc/event.d is now /etc/init, and files must have a ".conf" extension. So the ttymsg fix is now:

-Remove /etc/init/tty{1..6}.conf
-Install ttymsg as /etc/init/ttymsg.conf

The initctl commands remain the same. Though the new .conf files can use a slightly new syntax to consolidate all the "start on..." and "stop on..." lines into a single line, the old syntax works just fine.

Discussion on zephyr suggests that ttymsg should be removed from the .install file and installed using dh_installinit.

dh_installinit appears to not work (or at least does not honor --name)

  • Keywords lucid added; karmic removed
  • Type changed from task to defect
  • Summary changed from fix cluster-login-config for Karmic to fix cluster-login-config for Lucid

Currently, c-l-c does not disable user switching on Lucid. I don't know if that's because the gconf keys have changed, or because new gdm is too cool for gconf, or what.

Having heard no objections to my idea of diverting the indicator-users service to be a symlink to /bin/true, I vote for doing that.

Hrm, is this done? I thought user switching wasn't disabled, but it is for me on a newly installed Lucid machine. If someone else can verify that user switching is in fact disabled, we can close this.
