Hey guys!

Haven't been here in a while... Been pretty busy. Recently, I turned on my computer and gdm showed by a gray screen (the default background), with no list of users or anything. I have the latest version of gdm and gnome-session. It doesn't seem to be a user problem. It looks like this, without the "Sign in", "not listed?" and username. It looks like this, without the "Sign in", "not listed?" and username. It does contain the upper status bar with the time, volume and shutdown buttons.

When I log in and lock my screen, the default lock screen comes up, but it is unresponsive. The touchpad and mouse can move, but hitting space doesn't do anything and using the mouse to drag the screen upwards also doesn't work.

I did use KDM for a while, could it be due to that? Any suggestions?
