Ubuntu 14.04 removing guest access and removing remote login

Ubuntu 14.04 and 13.10 changed the location of the necessary file from the 13.04 and earlier /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf
for Ubuntu 14.04 & 13.10, type:

sudo nano /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf.d/50-unity-greeter.conf

and add the lines:

allow-guest=false
greeter-show-remote-login=false

Doesn’t work. No such file exists in Ubuntu 13.10

Saul, in some cases you’ll create the 50-unity-greeter.conf if it doesn’t already exist.
