Added user in gnome-settings as account disabled

When I do adduser Username user is added.
In Gnome-settings the user is visible, but under Authentication & Login after Password the user is disabled.
When I switch user, the new user is not in the list at login.

I just tested and also happen to me. Even though I choose not listed on login screen, I can’t login with blank password.

But when I tried to add sudo passwd Username, then create the password for newly created user, It’s show up on the login screen and I can login normally.

Thanks, that is what I see.
But in my mind after create user the user will be forced to change the password during the next login attempt. And that is missing. I will try to ask the Gnome-guy.

# Expire password
sudo passwd -e username

# Unlock password
sudo passwd -f -u username
