    Re: HowTo: Create a Passwordless / Guest Login (Simple Method)

    I've had the same problem as balance07 - that is, when I try to switch user into the password-less account, the account cannot be unlocked. Has anyone solved that problem?

    Ahaa! This kiosk mode with Pessulus has just made my week! Thank you so much. It works like a charm. Now I just need to fix some way to start up the Epiphany browser automatically when the user logs on and then disable all the panels.

    can i change the
    Code:
    sudo nano -B /etc/shadow
    to
    Code:
    sudo gedit -B /etc/nano
    with the same result? i find the "nano" editor to be rather confusing

    would be the correct way to do it.

    actually, ausiu, you're forgetting the '-B' switch (which doesn't exist for gedit).

    try this, 99bluefoxx:

    Code:
    sudo cp /etc/shadow /etc/shadow.bak
    sudo gedit /etc/shadow

    I did leave out the -B switch, but I believe Gedit's default behavior is to automatically make a backup copy.

    Hi all,
    thank you aysiu for this useful tip (and not easy to find by google).

    But, now I only have to hit <enter> in the logon screen.
    Given this, Isn't there a method to skip this useless logon screen ?

    Tx

    I'm sure there is a way in Gnome, but I'm using Kubuntu so the instructions will differ.

    In System Settings, click on the Advanced tab and then the Convenience tab. All the good stuff is on there.
