Help with password logon window


In Mandrake, whenever I type the incorrct password, the logon window starts to vibrate but without telling me its a bad password. I am using GDM.

I know its a normal feature, but how can I change this were it just says "Incorrect Password" or something instead of the quiver or the shaking of the logon window?

Here are my settings since I did everything bu still no luck:

Standard Greeting type
Quiver=false

No luck

You can change the login manager to gdm. I think it will be already installed if u have installed gnome.

I remember reading your question elsewhere. You should have bumped your old thread instead of starting a new one for the same question.
