Description Ray Strode [halfline] 2012-05-18 12:48:59 UTC
accountsservice tries to figure out which users to show based on who's logged in before.

It would be useful if there was a per-user way to specifically exclude/include a user.  This bit could be added to the users metadata in /var/lib/AccountsService/users
Comment 1 Ray Strode [halfline] 2012-05-18 12:50:23 UTC
note, excluded users should still get returned in ListCachedUsers, just tagged, (so they still show up in the user panel etc)

I am not a very techy person, so most of your categories mean nothing to me.  I loaded LibreOffice at home because I had it at work and wanted to continue working on things here.  Now, all our Work files have magically changed to Libre files.  My husband is livid.  
How can I change them back and how do I prevent this kind of takeover?  
Thank you
Nancy Thompson

Hi Nancy,

AccountsService has nothing to do with LibreOffice.  We're completely unrelated projects.

I'd suggest you try:
