Good day,

Does anyone know how to modify the login screen so that users are required to type their username along with their password?

I'm running Ubuntu 12.04 with all default settings

Have you tried adding User accounts in System setting? –  Stephen Myall Jul 2 '12 at 11:20
    
I will be using a mix of ldap users and local users so just want the ability for users to just type their name rather than select from a list –  Jan Geep Jul 2 '12 at 12:18

You need three settings to get exactly what you want:

greeter-show-manual-login = true
greeter-hide-users = true
allow-guest = false

Well I've found one option that seems to work partially

add greeter-show-manual-login = true to /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf and then reboot.

It still shows local accounts which is not ideal but does allow me to log in with ldap user accounts now.
