I'm running 17.10 Artful on an Asus Transformer with Intel® Core™ i5-5200U CPU @ 2.20GHz × 4 64-bit processor. Dual boot with Windows 10. Default boot is to Ubuntu. Just started booting directly into Guest session with no login. How do I get to boot to a login screen?

Check lightdm configuration file (/etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf) for below lines,

allow-guest=true/false autologin-guest = true/false

  • In 17.04, edit this file, /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf.d/50-no-guest.conf Mar 7, 2018 at 4:58
  • Thanks but there is no such file in 17.10. There is a ..."/usr/share/lightdm/lightdm.conf.d/50-ubuntu.conf" but no entry for"allow-guest...
