    Ubuntu 11.10 - Cannot Switch Users

    Installed Ubuntu 11.10 yesterday. Installation worked fine, however Ubuntu locks up when switching between user accounts. Password prompt appears as expected however once entered the session does not change to the new user account. Only option is to do a power off of the PC, shutdown does not work. Any thoughts on how to fix? Thanks.

    I think this might be a bug. I have the same problem as well. I cannot switch users because the password prompt locks up. For now, I guess the only alternative is to log off before changing users.

    I confirm the problem. I have the same situation on both PCs with 11.10. I have to press Ctrl + Alt + F7 to get to my logged user and here I can restart it without power button. When I press Ctrl + Alt + F8 there is locked LightDM. Could you please someone report this bug? I haven't good English enough to do it. It happens when you have more users and try to switch to another user quickly through the upright menu.

    Me2; recent distribution upgrades have been very buggy... :=( (and unity sucks)

    I too am having this same issue... attempt to switch user, enter the password, nothing happens.

    I'll file a bug report when I get home if no one else has done it by then.

    Same problem here. Don't get on with unity either, will be following the youtube instructions soon on how to get Gnome back.

    Also, in reference to the previous post, the YouTube link shows how to get GNOME back using 11.04. Doesn't work with 11.10.
