DEBIAN - hide user list

There's a lot of confused ideas out there about how to configure gdm3 to make him hide the list of available users in the login window at the startup of the Xsession.
Infact this is a desiderable behaviour because you don't really want let people know how many users there are on your machine and what are their username


Some people says you have to launch the command :
sudo gconftool-2 --direct --config-source xml:readwrite:/etc/gconf/gconf.xml.mandatory --type Boolean --set /apps/gdm/simple-greeter/disable_user_list True
but its too long for me and I'm not sure it works on debian :)

Some people says you have to change the user uid to something below 1000, to hide that user in the login window. This workaround works but doesn't meet our goal: I just want to tell the system which user to log in,
without choosing one from a list also if the list is made of only one user :).

Some people says you have to set "disable_user_list=true" in the gdm configuration. I like this way so I made a few tests and this is the working conf on my debian wheezy distro.

Edit the /etc/gdm3/daemon.conf file and add the following line under the greeting section :
sudo init 6

That's all. It works !

Any other suggestions ?
