Guest user account for students
« on: June 04, 2018, 03:23:49 pm »
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!
