This question already has an answer here:
I am using Ubuntu 12.04 64 bit. I have created a system user so as to keep it out of the login screen with
sudo adduser --group --system markpaskal, but I cannot login from the greeter because there is no 'Other' option.
Short of stopping lightdm and using startx from a virtual terminal, do I have any way of logging in to this account? Should I be seeing the 'Other' option?
