Hide / Disable Guest / Remote Login on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS Trusty Tahr

Hello All,

This Article will show you how to Hide or Disable Guest Login and Remote Login from Login Screen of Ubuntu 14.04 LTS Trusty Tahr.

I have installed Ubuntu 14.04 LTS Trusty Tahr on First day of its release, As of now, Not a single crash took place which is great indication of Stability. I noticed few LightDM related changes in Ubuntu 14.04 LTS Trusty Tahr.

In previous versions of Ubuntu like 13.04 and 13.10 there was “/usr/lib/lightdm/lightdm-set-defaults” command, By using this command you can Disable / Enable / Hide / Show Guest Login or Remote login by executing on command prompt but in Ubuntu 14.04 LTS Trusty Tahr this command doesn’t exist. But not to worry, I managed to do it by editing / updating lightDM configuration.

To Disable / Hide Guest Login / Remote Login, Following steps will help you :

1. Mandatory : root access or sudo access equivalent to root.

2. /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf doesn’t exist by default on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS Trusty Tahr, So we have to create it as per our requirement.
2.1 Execute following command :

 root@tejas-barot-linux:~$ sudo touch /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf

2.2 Add following contents to /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf , Save and Exit from file.

 => sudo vi /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf


3. Now restart your system and You will not be able to see Guest / Remote Login on Login Screen.

Enjoy Ubuntu 14.04 LTS Trusty Tahr 🙂 Enjoy Linux 🙂 Enjoy Open Source 🙂
