Password field not shown in login screen

When I boot, eventually there is a login screen (by LightDM I suppose) that shows my name. For some reason it does not show where to write password. I have to move focus to Guest account first and then back to my account to see the password field. What is wrong?

In /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf I recommend hide guest account to see if it solves the problem:

uncomment/add

allow-guest = False

In addition, this may be because you set up autologin at installation, so make sure

autologin-user =

With nothing on the right/commented out.
Hope this helps

I don't understand. My /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf looks like this:

[Seat:*]

[LightDM]
run-directory=/run/lightdm


[Seat:*]
greeter-session=lightdm-slick-greeter
user-session=xfce
allow-guest=false
session-wrapper=/etc/lightdm/Xsession

greeter-show-manual-login=false

[XDMCPServer]


[VNCServer]

but Guest session is still shown in the login screen. I added allow-guest=false. Anyway, I want to have guest session, too, so disabling guest session is not an accepted solution.

Note that it has not been the same after every boot. Sometimes password field is shown.

Should that be set to 'true'?

No, it would show another item where you can type user name.
