comment Cannot login via Unity login screen after upgrade to 12.04
Thank you for the pointer. I've just set lightdm as display manager again with 'sudo dpkg-reconfigure lightdm'. I can log in via the standard login screen now.

comment Cannot login via Unity login screen after upgrade to 12.04
I've installed GDM via 'sudo apt-get install gdm' and set it as default display manager vs. lightdm After a reboot I can log into my user account via GDM's old style login screen. Even though I'm happy this lets me get back to work, I'd love to know why lightdm is acting flaky and how to resolve this properly.
