Description

After a fresh install using Live DVD, GNOME cannot login in user. When you enter the user name and click login in the scren refreshes and no password textbox is visible.

At this stage only options are login and cancel button and therefore cannot get logged in after fresh install.

Had to boot into single user mode and activate virtual consoles then after rebbot could get to command line with CTRL+ALT+F2, however still cannot login to gnome at all.

Tested logins. Issue was resolved. Reviewed for hipster-20140701.
Ensure xscreensaver is enabled and screensaver is valid and working properly (will work without it). Check status of compiz and if it is enabled as well (can affect certain things).
