    User Manager "Show all users/groups" checkbox missing

    Ubu 9.04, all updates installed.

    1. Log in as an admin users.

    2. Open the User Manager, click the "Unlock" button and enter admin pw.

    3. Only me and root show up in list, as expected. However...

    4. There is NO "Show all users and groups" checkbox to the left, under the list of users.

    When I look at groups, I see all of the groups, but if I try to add a user to a group, I only see me and root.

    Any ideas on why this is happening?

    This is by design? (i.e. no checkbox)

    Do you mean you have other users on the PC and they are not showing?

    Other users are showing for me in both user list and in groups...
    No longer participating......

    Correct, I have several other users and they are not showing up in the list.

    I can confirm that they exist; If I try to add the user again, the system says "User already exists".

    And.... I can log in with that other user.

    So... why aren't they showing up? Searching on "Missing users in User Manager" resulted in bugs from 2006.

    I have the same problem, but only my root user shows up (none of the normal users show up at all). For anyone looking for a solution, i got around it by using kuser (from kde). That shows all the system users as well though, so be careful!
