Bug Description

In Ubuntu artful, there is no nopasswdlogin group anymore. It seems also that the option to configure user to not have a password is missing. Moreover, in the login screen, "login" button is disabled if the password input box is empty, so even if I force set an empty password, it cannot be used.

It seems you can login with empty password in the login screen. Not sure why this didn't work for me when I was testing it last time. But the rest of the issue still stands. It is confusing that you have to type a password if the account should not have a password. Ideally, user should just be able to click on their username in the list of usernames on the login screen.
