Ubuntu Computer Login Screen Prank

Hello Folks,

It has been a long time since the last post.

I'm back with another Prank for Linux(Ubuntu) users. In case, if you want to freak your friend out for not being able to log-in into his/her computer, this is going to be the craziest prank.

Now, if you don't have your friend's(target user) Ubuntu computer system's password but you have physical access to the computer, you can follow these steps to make this prank happen:

1) Hold LSHIFT at power-on to boot into grub
2) Select the default kernel's recovery mode and  press Enter
3) Select "root - Drop to root shell prompt" and press Enter
4) Run "mount -o rw,remount /"
5) Run "chsh -s /usr/sbin/nologin user"
6) Run "reboot"

And next time your friend tries to login, let him try, he won't be able to and he will freak out :)

NOTE: The prank suggested above is for fun only.
