if I type in the wrong password in gnome login screen, the account gets locked for 10min. “The account is locked due to three failed kogin attempts.” How do I disable this feature or how to change the number of attempts and locking time? There is also a bug in this feature, cause the account gets locked after one and not three attempts. So every time I type in the wrong password once, I have to wait for 10min…
Hello and welcome!
Could you post what’s in:
does the system with the problem have a fingerprint reader that you do NOT use - even one that is not configured, but not disabled?
For me and by now 2 more users I am aware of it is the introduction of working finger print auth in GDM/gnome that causes the issue.
I worked around it by dissabling the fingerprint reader in the UEFI
content of /etc/pam.d/login
auth required pam_securetty.so
auth requisite pam_nologin.so
auth include system-local-login
account include system-local-login
session include system-local-login
yes, my laptop does have a fingerprint reader, which is disabled in settings.
This could be the problem, because I think the problem occurred after a firmware update, that added support for the inbuilt fingerprint reader. I’ll try if disabling it in the UEFI helps.
Turning fingerprint reader off in uefi fixed the bug
