Description Marcus Moeller 2011-10-08 11:19:50 EDT
After upgrading to the latest packages from updates-testing today, i can no longer sign in, using the userlist in GDM.

I can select the username and enter the password, but when clicking on Sign In, nothing happens.

I have to choose 'not-listed' and enter my username manually.


Besides that, language settings are now ignored and always fall back to English.
Comment 1 Colin Macdonald 2011-10-13 07:27:33 EDT
I think I can reproduce this---at least part of it.


For me, I can log in the first time but then gnome-shell gives the "oh no, ..., logout" black screen (I'm trying to track down this bug separately.)  When I click logout, I'm returned to the GDM screen.

I can then select a user, type in the password but neither Enter nor clicking "sign in" work (the button animates a click but nothing happens, the password field is still filled in).

Clicking "cancel" returns me to the list of users.  I haven't tried "not-listed" so can't confirm that.  Nor can I confirm the ignoring of language settings.

It only seems to occur if a fingerprint reader is present.
Comment 3 Marcus Moeller 2011-10-18 08:13:33 EDT
Sorry, have to revert this. It also occurred on systems without fingerprint readers. The issue seems to be fixed by: gnome-settings-daemon-3.2.1-1.fc16

I've seen this issue a couple of times and can confirm the mentioned update is a valid fix:

Blocking F16Blocker; proposing as a blocker because this clearly breaks the desktop login test case:

May be a dupe of 740625?

Hmmm, well I still observe this issue with

colin, your bug does not appear to be the same thing. please  file it separately.
Comment 9 Colin Macdonald 2011-10-23 06:30:28 EDT
Maybe so, but this update seems to have fixed it.  I won't bother opening a new bug, unless I see it again.
