Succeeded in joining Elementary OS installation to our Windows domain via active directory. Used winbind, Samba, etc.

Problem: The login screen only allows for the initially defined user (defined during installation), or a guest session. How would one go about entering the domain login?

  • Same issue to my case, successfully added to the domain. But can't find the domain login in the login screen.

Create a new file /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf and put the following in it:


Then, press CTRL+ALT+F1 to open the command line and execute service lightdm restart.

After that, you should have the option 'Manual login' at the bottom of the login screen.
