@shantanu The log contains nothing suspicious as far as I can tell. Last few lines: [+8.24s] DEBUG: Started session 1985 with service 'lightdm', username 'user' [+8.25s] DEBUG: Session 1985 got 1 message(s) from PAM [+8.25s] DEBUG: Prompt greeter with 1 message(s) What is PAM?

I also removed and reinstalled unity-greeter. I'll try some of the suggestions in your reference.

I completely removed and reinstalled lightdm with no change. Could it still be a configuration issue?
