Guest user account for students

Hi there,

for a school I try to revive old Asus EEE 1005HA Netbooks.
Sparky with LXDE fits fine & works.

Before I leave this Netbooks to the students hands I'd like to make them a little "waterproof / safe against misconfiguration" (i.e. no more girl pictures on the desktop...) by activating an auto login GUEST ACCOUNT that is created and deleted on each and every reboot (users still can save their data on their network share...).

Do you guys have any advice on where to get information how to configure so?

Tkx in advance!

Hi
Change (as root):
#allow-guest=true
to:
allow-guest=true
in the file:
/etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf

In other words, all you have to do remove the "#"
(in the file lightdm.conf located at: /etc/lightdm/... )

Basically -  many files in /etc are configuration files, files that determine how a program is set up to process it's input and how to output it. 

If it is a configuration file, all lines starting with 

#     are commented out. 

It might be applied if it is  the default or normal application setting - then again maybe it is not. 
Or it might just be text to let you know about how this setting is used.
 
#   can also be added to some forms of code
      code blah bleh bluh     # this is not seen - it might be a comment I add to a two line piece of code

Please mark the Subject line with     Solved:  just prior to "Guest user account for students"

peace out.
