View Full Version : [ubuntu] Can't unlock Login Screen (gdmsetup)

Hello all,

Running Ubuntu 10.10 64-bit.

I've just noticed that the Login Screen window (System->Administration->Login Screen) does nothing when I attempt to click 'Unlock' for making modifications.

As per directions in a 2 year old thread in this forum where someone had the same issues, I've tried 'gksu gdmsetup', 'sudo gdmsetup', and 'ck-launch-session gdmsetup', all with equally futile results.

I'm including below the messages gdmsetup prints to screen when started from a terminal emulator, when I invoke it simply as 'gdmsetup.' I'm sorry it's such a verbose output, but I've highlighted the specific message which is output when I click 'Unlock.'

santosh@santosh-desktop:~$


The same error (The name org.gnome.DisplayManager was not provided by any .service files) seems to occur almost throughout...

Can anyone suggest what I should do further? Thanks for the help!
