Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have Ubuntu 12.10 installed with lightdm display manager on my machine in office. I have enabled LDAP authentication and it works fine. The problem is every user who logs in to the machine using LDAP credentials can see other users listed along with his account under users and accounts above logout option in the top right menu.

I want only the current user account to be shown there.

I have added the following in my /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf file but the problem persists

[SeatDefaults] section: greeter-hide-users=true

Please help.
