I would like to create a domain user in Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.

Currently it only prompts for a username and password when starting up Ubuntu 14.04.

Is there a way to specify that the user is part of a domain etc so that when entering the initial login information it will login using the correct domain credentials etc?

Here's the answer: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ActiveDirectoryWinbindHowto

You have to join the Ubuntu to the AD to be able to logon with a AD-user on the Linux box.

If you decide to use Beyond Trust (former LikeWise), this is how to do it:

Yes, it's not that easy in Ubuntu. If you use another dist, like Fedora or SUSE, it has built-in support for joining AD.

Thanks for the other suggestions.
Has Fedora and Suse provided patches against the Hearbleed bug though?

Why you ask off-topic questions? heartbleed bug was addressed everywhere within 3 days from publication. Patch is simpler than simple fyi.
