    How to prevent GDM from hiding the password field


    I have searched far and wide but could not seem to find a way to prevent GDM from hiding the password field. I am the only user of my laptop, to login I first need to click the login name to show the password field and then I can enter the password. I would like to have the password field always visible and have focus.

    You don't need to click it, just press Enter and then enter the password. Just one extra keystroke, no need to use the mouse at all.
