This question already has an answer here:

I am wondering if there is a User Friendly (GUI) way to enable/disable the Guest Session.

If not, is there a way to allow logged in users to create Guest Sessions, but not from the login screen.

I am aware of this:

If you're using the default LightDM in Ubuntu 11.10, edit /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf so that it looks like this:


Will this suit my fallback?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Note that a new question (How to disable the guest account via the GUI?) also ask the same (with 12.10 instead of 11.10) and is closed as duplicate of How do I disable the guest session? – PhoneixS Jan 15 '14 at 10:33

No, not yet. LightDM is pretty new so there are still a few UI issues like that to iron out.
