Guest session and user management in Ubuntu 11.10

Oct 17, 2011, 13:03 (0 Talkback[s])

[ Thanks to finid for this link. ]

"User (account) management is one area that received slight modifications in Ubuntu Desktop 11.10, the latest stable release of the popular Linux distribution. This short tutorial presents some information about the guest sessions, what you can do about it -if you can do anything at all without messing up your system, and how to set up a standard user account.

"Guest Sessions are non-standard accounts that anyone may use when the data they will generate in the course of using the system does not have to be persistent. Unlike in Ubuntu 11.04, where, by default, a guest session can only be started from an active user session, Ubuntu 11.10 offers access to a guest session from the login screen and also from an active user session."
