Why after upgrading to Lubuntu 12.10 from 12.04 I can't login other than using the "Guest Account". On the login screen there is the option for "Guest Account" and "Other...".

I select "Other..." and type in the [administrator] user name and password I just used in the install [the original user name & password from 12.04] and it keeps on giving me the message "Incorrect password, please try again".

I have tried reinstalling with a different user name and password without any success. The only option I haven't tried yet is to set it to "Auto Login" during the install.

First you're saying "after upgrading to Lubuntu 12.10 from 12.04" and then you mention "I have tried reinstalling..." - so what's the current state of things? If you re-installed the system obviously your old login and password won't work, the one you specified during the (most recent) install will. –  Sergey Nov 23 '12 at 1:19
    
As I logically said before. I upgraded then I've re-installed because it willnot accecpt the password I just used in the in stall Also I can't login from terminal [ctrl+alt+F1] or from within "Guest Account" to access or change file/drives. Thx Arie –  Arie Dub Nov 23 '12 at 2:10

All I mentioned is that the UN & PW I used the first time was the UN & PW I was using for 12.04! Also I can't login from terminal [ctrl+alt+F1] or from within "Guest Account" to access or change file/drives. Thx Arie –  Arie Dub Nov 23 '12 at 2:22
