- You need to run a simple command
- Reversing the change is extremely easy
La guest session de Ubuntu It can be useful in certain circumstances - such as when an acquaintance asks for our laptop to read their mail or something like that - since it allows anyone to access the system without having to enter a username or password. However, if we don't use it too much we may want to deactivate it.
Make the guest session disappear from the authentication screen it's pretty straightforward.
In Ubunlog we had already written an entry about it in which to deactivate guest account it was enough to edit the file "lightdm.conf" located in the path "/ etc / lightdm /" changing the parameter "allow-guest = true" to "allow-guest = false".
Well, this time we will deactivate the guest session in another way, with a small command. Thus, to deactivate the guest session in Ubuntu 13.04 we simply open a console and enter:
sudo /usr/lib/lightdm/lightdm-set-defaults -l false
We close all the important documents that we have open and proceed to restart LightDM (the graphical server will restart):
sudo restart lightdm
And that's it, the guest session will no longer appear on the Ubuntu welcome screen:
If we later regret it and want it to appear again, we simply revert the change with the command:
sudo /usr/lib/lightdm/lightdm-set-defaults -l true
