Did you mean to post in the lubuntu section?

The image you posted is of Unity.

If you are trying to get into the gnome shell you will need to tab through the selects on the log-in screen and press the space bar to select gnome. There is a bug report out on this and it will likely be fixed soon. Hope this is what you were talking about.
