Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 744420
cannot sign in with userlist
Last modified: 2011-10-23 06:30:28 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.
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.
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.
Maybe so, but this update seems to have fixed it. I won't bother opening a new bug, unless I see it again.
