I tried to create a new user in 12.04 using the "Users menu", but although the user guest has been created, I never got asked a password. So when I logout and try to login as guest, I get asked a password which I don't know. How can I solve this?

Simply hitting Enter when asked for the password won't be accepted as a valid password.

Go to "user account" again, select the newly created user and and under login options, next to password, click on "account disabled" to setup a password.

Excellent, I didn't see that the menu was clickable. –  213441265152351 May 5 '12 at 16:39
