I just upgraded from 16.04 to 18.04, and now I find that it's necessary to swipe up from the bottom of the lock screen just to get to the login form. Is there some way I can eliminate this step so I just see the login form instead of the lock screen? Why add an unnecessary step?


Have you tried just typing without the form being displayed? For me (18.04.2 LTS), that causes GDM to display the login form.

  • Ha, yes, I just discovered that. Problem solved. Just gotta start typing the password. – arnoldbird Jul 20 '19 at 22:09
  • I discovered it by accident myself. :) – Unstuck Jul 21 '19 at 13:38
