This bug affects 21 people
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
accountsservice (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

* Impact

Seems like created issues, the allow_active/inactive rules they are needed otherwise users can't change their name/icon/etc from the user panel in unity-control-center...

* Test Case

- open unity-control-center
- go to the user panel
- try to change your user icon

it should work

* Regression potential

it's granting back rights that were given before, shouldn't create new issues

I had just created a bug for problems switching languages:

I managed to end up getting to this bug here. I have marked mine as a duplicate. I can also confirm that installing the proposed packages below in XenialXerus has fixed my problems. I can now switch languages again.
