Line 1: Line 1:
 + ​Cannot Unlock the Screen
 +I ran into the issue of not being able to log back in after locking my screen. I would have to use the switch user option and re-login. After a quick search, here is what I found:
 +<​file>​
 +sudo chown root:shadow /​sbin/​unix_chkpwd
 +sudo chmod 2755 /​sbin/​unix_chkpwd
 +</​file>​
 +Run these two commands and all should be well.
 +
 +You can also try these if the first two don't work:
 +<​file>​
 +sudo chown root:shadow /etc/shadow
 +sudo chmod 440 /etc/shadow
 +</​file>​
