I'm setting up a laptop with Ubuntu 13.04 and my plan is to put it on our domain. I already have it connected to the domain, I just need to figure out how to change the logon page so all it displays is a Username and Password entry box.

I know this can be done in earlier versions of Ubuntu, but those methods do not appear to work in this instance. Does anyone know if the process has changed?

I found this blog article that helped explain everything I was looking to do. Hopefully it helps someone else.
