configure lightdm greeter in ubuntu 14.04
I have found answer to my problem and hope it will also serve best to the others who need it.
It's so simple. Just make some changes to .conf file and its done.
I had to make changes to two .conf files in order to get what I want.
1. Disable Guest Login
In Ubuntu 14.04 the .conf file to be edited has been moved to
run these commands :
sudo gedit /usr/share/lightdm/lightdm.conf.d/50-unity-greeter.conf
add line :
2. Enable Manual login
since, in versions earlier than 14.04 .conf file is located in
/etc/lightdm/ directory which has been moved to
/usr/share/lightdm/lidhtdm.conf.d/ , we need to create a
lightdm.conf file in
run this command :
sudo gedit /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf
add lines :
[SeatDefaults] greeter-show-manual-login=true greeter-hide-users=true
Thats it.... Now, restart your pc and see the change.
