I have installed ubuntu 12.04 on my desktop pc. I also have a windows installed in that system.

  • So, after ubuntu installataion I had login automatically without asking a username and password. I have installed some apps from software center.

  • But after restarting ubuntu I found my installed apps missing. While googling this issue, I understood I have login as a guest and ubuntu removes guest login files on system shutdown.

  • Then I created a new user from System Settings -> User Accounts. Then I logged out and login again as new user. But after restarting the machine I cant found the newly created user account there.

What is the problem here? Is there any option in ubuntu to remember user accounts?
