    Well if affected then try the .deb attached to the one report & see if it fixes. (there is also a request to merge what is 'in' the attached .deb's
    At least here in a fresh install a couple of days ago, while in the first 5 restarts I got the bug 3 times, since then there has been no sign of it so I've no basis to try/comment on the changes.
    (now while the bug did stop right after removing quiet splash from boot line & preventing grub from setting a gfxmode likely not related, more likely happenstance.

    at boot login screen, cant type UNTIL I right click password field

    yeah, that's weird.
    been like this most of the time.

    right click so copy paste menu shows .

    maybe I need to left click the field, but the focus is not on the password field. which is where people will type just like me. And when it does not work get frustrated...

    Alternatively you can just click in the language selection icon at top right.

    Hi, I just verified a left click wont do it.
    Must right click the password field to type it in.

    If it is not, it is an embarrassing usability bug.
    I think they will fix it as it affects all people.

    The login problem is still there

    The Lightdm login problem is still there. The only way I can get it working is by right clicking the empty box, and then try to write my password. Sometimes it works with one try , sometimes 2 tries are needed. Would Ubuntu devs ever think of getting rid of this problem?

    Exclamation Re: 14.04 Can't Type Login

    On an eMachines®/Acer® EL1210-09 with both a 600W Shuttle® PSU retrofit and an EVGA® GeForce® 8400 GS™ half-height video display adapter, the Login screen on UbuntuGNOME® 14.01a2 and 14.02b1 has occasionally failed to appear despite X starting during boot. It appears that having two or more graphics processing units (I have both the planar GeForce® in the nVIDIA® MCP78S chipset plus an nVIDIA® GT218 Rev. 2) is a factor - I actually had to bounce between both GPU's with monitors to get a login screen. Additionally, the two-GPU problem may be exacerbating known issues with both GNOME® Shell and GNOME® Settings Daemon. How does one work arund these issues when one is unable to disable the planar GPU?

    Re: Login screen bug

    You can hit the En button on the top and then close it and that will let you type the password also...yeah, it is kind of embarrassing that over 100 have reported it and no one is even assigned to fixing it...and besides, don't the developers notice it??? Very strange indeed...
