Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

There's a new login screen now with Ubuntu 11.10, and I can't figure out how to login. When I click my cursor in the password box the screen goes blank and the computer reboots. Three minutes later I try a different method.

I've tried this about 20 times without success. How can I log in?

That rebooting problem sounds like it should be reported as a bug. Have you tried simply typing your password without using the mouse to click first then pressing Enter to log in? –  Christopher Kyle Horton Nov 11 '11 at 19:29
This question should instead be filed as a bug report, and as such is off-topic, thanks! Instructions here. –  RolandiXor Feb 2 '12 at 18:18
