I’m currently working on setting up a fresh install of Ubuntu 14.04 and I like to have a clean login menu with no extra options. In a previous post I showed how to disable the guest account and remote login in Ubuntu 13.04 and older. There’s no longer any “Remote Login” option, so only one thing to clear up. The process for disabling the guest account in Ubuntu 14.04 has changed a bit from previous versions. It’s very simple and only involves making a new file instead of editing an existing one.

  1. Enter the following command to create a new text file in /usr/share/lightdm/lightdm.conf/ called 50-no-guest.conf :
  2. Add this text to the file, and don’t forget to leave a blank line at the end!
  3. Exit and save by hitting Ctrl + x and then y .

That’s it! Let me know if you have any questions.
