I have this same issue. Fresh install of 12.04 today. All updates. Connecting to a working ldap server.
I found a thread on ubuntu forums, and it said to rem out all the lines in /etc/X11/Xsession.c/90qt-a11y and install nscd. By doing that, I can get logged into the ldap server, but don't get my desktop background. I've got to get this resolved by next weekend as we are scheduled to install 18 new Ubuntu 12.04 ldap clients... I'd like to have them work! The current 11.10 clients are working perfectly. -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Ubuntu Server Team, which is subscribed to libnss-ldap in Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/974938 Title: Process "gsettings" prevents logging in To manage notifications about this bug go to: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/libnss-ldap/+bug/974938/+subscriptions -- Ubuntu-server-bugs mailing list Ubuntuemail@example.com Modify settings or unsubscribe at: https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ubuntu-server-bugs
