After updating from 14.10 to 15.04, the login screen is black. Just by changing the mouse pointer do I find the password text field; password typed in and then all works normal.

Any ideas?

    Seems like a bug, but perhaps graphics driver issue ,too. I'd file bug report and switch for the time being to another greeter like lightdm-gtk-greeter or gdm – Sergiy Kolodyazhnyy Apr 25 '15 at 4:07
  • bug report is a good idea :) we can log in then all works fine, after we have found the text field :D – CoSma Con Apr 25 '15 at 13:38

I had the same problem, Logging in the terminal mode (Alt+F1) and running the command:

sudo dpkg-reconfigure -a

and rebooting fixed my problem.

Install another greeter, like gdm, then run the command sudo dpkg-reconfigure lightdm to switch to it.
