When I boot up the screen, all I see is a "Guest session" with the message about work not being saved etc. I have to log out and back in as myself. I have followed all the standard answers to remove guest account, but there is no change.

  • Can you not change to your own user at the greeter? No need to remove guest account. 4.bp.blogspot.com/-3LMY7ncI7Kw/VDaIgRGmpoI/AAAAAAAAUic/… (just one that popped in Google). – user589808 Jan 13 '17 at 17:24
  • I can change to my own user, I just don't want to! I would prefer to just see my own desktop when I log in. – Rich Dell Jan 13 '17 at 18:26
  • Although not recommended you can set automatic login to your user if you want. – user589808 Jan 13 '17 at 18:27

  • None of this has made any change. I did notice that I have another lightdm in /usr/share/. Is that normal? – Rich Dell Jan 13 '17 at 21:49

OP's answer

I found a file, /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf contained the line " autologin- guest=true" I changed to False and solved the problem.
