I tried to disable gnome user list on login screen on fedora 25. But it is just not working.

./profile
./profile/user
./profile/ibus 
./profile/gdm
./db
./db/ibus
./db/ibus.d
./db/ibus.d/00-upstream-settings
./db/gdm
./db/gdm.d
./db/gdm.d/00-login-screen

Content of ./db/gdm.d/00-login-screen

[org/gnome/login-screen]
disable-user-list=true

Content of ./profile/gdm

user-db:user
system-db:gdm

even after dconf update, remove db and dconf update, reboot or restart gdm. The user list keeps being shown.

Any suggenstions to fix this?

This worked on my systems to disable the the user list:

Create a file /etc/dconf/db/gdm.d/00-login-screen with contents like:

[org/gnome/login-screen]

banner-message-enable=true

banner-message-text='Enter a valid Domain or Linux user name to begin.\nUnauthorized access is prohibited by law. Access to this network may be monitored and/or recorded for quality assurance, security, performance, and/or maintenance purposes.'

disable-restart-buttons=true

disable-user-list=true

logo='/usr/share/pixmaps/poweredby.png'

Then I ran:

dconf update

Then I renamed gdm's existing dconf user file to force gdm to create a new dconf user file:

mv /var/lib/gdm/.config/dconf/user /var/lib/gdm/.config/dconf/user.save

Finally, I rebooted the system, after which gdm had a new dconf user file, and the the login screen was configured the way I wanted it. You may want different text and reboot access, of course.

Hope it helps.
