** Tags added: apport-collected running-unity

** Description changed:

  After an upgrade from ubuntu 12.04 to 12.10, I was no more able to login with my usual account.
  Lightdm failed to load x session.
  After a long search, I understood that the problem was coming from ubuntu-2d xsession.
  My user account was configured to use unbuntu-2d when i was in ubuntu 12.04.
  But as this xsession has been removed in ubuntu 12.10, lightdm failed to load  it.
  
  I managed to fix my problem doing following steps :
   - edit my user file with gedit in this folder :
  /var/lib/AccountsService/users
   - replace "XSession=ubuntu-2d" by "XSession=ubuntu"
   - reboot ubuntu for the file modification to be taken in account.
  
- In my opinion, this fix should be applied automatically for all users
- using ubuntu-2d and upgrading their distribution.
