Hide Users / Login as “Other” user from Login Screen | Ubuntu 14.04 LTS Trusty Tahr

Hello All,

This Article will show you how to Hide Users  and Login as “Other” user 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  Hide Users and / enable Login as “Other” User option  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 Hide Users  and Login as “Other” user from Login Screen, 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
[SeatDefaults]
greeter-show-manual-login=true
greeter-hide-users=true
Hide_Users_Manual

Hide_Users_Manual

3. Now restart your system and You will not be able to see Users on Login Screen and You will able to login as “Other” User from Login Screen.
