List user names in Debian login screen

Published by arifur on

By default Debian does not list any usernames in the login screen as a result you are required to type the username and the password everytime. Which is great for security concerned people but sometimes that can be an inconvenience for personal pc. Anyway here is how to list all the usernames in Debian

sudo nano /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf

Now set [c]greeter-hide-users[/c] to false if its not already. Or just uncomment the line


Save and restart your pc
