Hiding User List while Login in Ubuntu Karmic 9.10 is quiet simple thing. You need to just open the terminal window and then type the following command without any mistake and then press enter.

Code:
sudo gconftool-2 --direct --config-source xml:readwrite:/etc/gconf/gconf.xml.mandatory --type Boolean --set /apps/gdm/simple-greeter/disable_user_list True
Now when you make login user list would be in hidden state.
