? Hide user list during login?

Hi there!

I am running Ubuntu Mate 22.04.1 LTS.
My question:

How can I hide the user list during the login?

At the moment, the name of (the last logged) user is shown, and her password is asked.

What I want:
I have to enter my user name first, and my password second.

No other user should know any other user name, only her own.

Thank you for assistence!

UM uses lightdm for login. I found a somewhat older method here

I suspect it will still work fine, but my apologies that I don't have time to test this just now. But it is only changes to a few text config files, so you should be able to test and reverse easily if it doesn't work right. Just keep a backup version of any file you alter. Even if you really messed up the config, remember you can always correct from one of the command line terminals. (Ctrl-Alt-F1 to Ctrl-Alt-F6)

Please post again with what you find out, or if you need more help.
