    Cannot seem to find the guidance that works to get rid of the NX user from the lock screen….please help? I have seen a comment somewhere in another of your posts that it is not actually supposed to show, but it does!



    Hello Nairb,

    Is it fresh installation of NoMachine?

    Did you do a MacOS update last time?

    Could you create a compressed tar.gz archive of the
    /Library/Application Support/NoMachine/var/log directory
    and send to forum[at]nomachine[dot]com.

    Please also check output of this command:
    defaults read /Library/Preferences/ HiddenUsersList | grep nx

    Anyway you can try to hide the user by running;

    sudo /usr/bin/defaults write /Library/Preferences/ HiddenUsersList -array-add nx


    I have attached a tar file of the log directory.

    The result of the “defaults ~” command line was “nx”

    The sudo command was run before with no results and I ran it again as you specified and it did not remove the user. It shows as “Other” on the opening boot up sign in screen.

    I am using the most recently downloaded versions of NoMachine as well as MacOs.


    Thanks for your help!





    Unfortunately in the logs package there is missing nxinstall.log. The log file tell us more what happened wrong
    during installation. But now you have hidden user nx. We cannot disable “Other Users” option in NoMachine
    installation process but you can do it yourself by using command in your terminal. To disable “Other Users”
    option please type:

    sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/ SHOWOTHERUSERS_MANAGED -bool FALSE

    If you want to enable it back use:
    sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/ SHOWOTHERUSERS_MANAGED -bool TRUE
