I can't sign in because unable to enter. I use ubuntu 15.10
try alt tab that helped me on 5.1 version
I have the same issue, the alt tab didnt work for me
running ubuntu gnome
using the command line args doesnt work either
Same problem, running Arch Linux with AwesomeWM.
Command-line arguments not working too.
Same issue for me with gnome-shell on Arch Linux.
What are the command line arguments
I have the same issue, trying with Linux Mint and Kubuntu.
Same here on the new build released yesterday, can't type any characters, this should be highly prioritized for the next release. http://forum.unity3d.com/threads/unity-on-linux-release-notes-and-known-issues.350256/#post-2389564
Work offline is a workaround for now.
Update: On 14.04 LTS
I tried to start unity from within fluxbox instead gnome-shell, and this allowed me to log in!
how to start in offline mode?
It is right on the login box. See pic.
I guess that isn't really a workaround though. You cannot access the Asset Store and that is kinda a big deal.

Not really i think work online button spawns only after first time login
Confirmed, works on Fluxbox.
I thought that would be something related to the composition manager, which is used by gnome-shell among others but not by Fluxbox on default but I've checked that by killing xcompmgr and I still couldn't sign in on Awesome.
Same problem here: Can't type any characters at login - and 'work offline' button not present. Just for the records.
I'm also having issues with this - unable to type any characters in the login window. Upon hitting spacebar or enter, the launcher crashes and outputs "Aborted." to stdout.
Running Gentoo 4.3 on NVIDIA binary driver under XFCE4.
i get it working by suggested option installing fluxbox its like 2mb, ofc siwched back to LXDE after first login
The same issue with dwm/wmii. Solved it by switching to fluxbox temporarily.
Also suffering this problem on Ubuntu Gnome 15.10, can't even paste the details into the boxes.
Same issue here...
Same issue here, Linux Mint Mate 17.2.
Same issue, Ubuntu 14.04 x64.
A good workaround for now is just installing fluxbox, reboot and switch to it in the login window
Eek, looks like a focus regression with CEF - we're investigating.
I basically can't do anything:
Asset store window doesn't scale properly on resize
Once Asset store window is closed it breaks other windows that it was docked with leaving it all white with no tabs
Can't login (Due to input fields broken)
Can't create new project (unless I create the folder and open it from within Unity)
Can't use input fields: asset store, login, creating a new project
All other fields seem to work
Okay, I have a silly question. I installed fluxbox and log in but now I don't know any longer how to open Unity. I'm totally unfamiliar with fluxbox desktop. When type to console
and there the only file is "client-scopes.json"
Any help would be appreciated.
edit: 3.16.0-34-generic + Linux Mint 17.2 Rafaela
I found it:
and manage to log in
Same problem, latest ubuntu and unity linux build. Cannot sign in, keyboard input not working. Does not matter how i access unity (via applications, via terminal, etc). Keyboard simply not working, therefore cannot open unity at all. Fix???
I've had success downloading the previous build (5.1.0f3+2015091501) and just signing in with that, then running the newer build to open the project.
on 5.1.0f3 version i had to alt tab to be able to tupe my username and password on lubuntu
Installing fluxbox did it for me.
Trying to download previous deb file but it keeps dropping. I'll keep trying/
"fluxbox"? what is that, a Windows emulator or a new Ubuntu front end or what?
Sorry if that's a dumb question, new to Ubuntu.
Never mind, found out what fluxbox is. I'll download and give it a try. Thanks.
I also figured it out with Fluxbox.
I've tried Gnome3 and Xfce4.
But these were not working.
For what it's worth, thought I would mention I couldn't log in on Fedora 23 using Gnome 3 or Mate...but I could log in using Plasma. I didn't try xfce, but I do have that installed.
Edit: Just tried Unity on xfce and couldn't log in or type in any input.
Plasma 5 works fine, though.
Same issue on Elementary OS Freya; cannot type into login. Pressing Enter crashes Unity. Had the same issue with the previous build.
Same here on Ubuntu 14.04 X64. Was pumped to give this a shot. Hopefully it's fixed in the next release!
install fuxbox it is like 5mb just login first time
After installing fluxbox I was able to login and bypass the screen.
Notes for next victim:
From Ubuntu -
In terminal - sudo apt-get install fluxbox
Log out, click Ubuntu icon by session login, select FluxBox, login.
Right click on desktop to find applications, browse to terminal.
Some mod should just stick this at the top or something.... people are too lazy to read/search the forum...
There are some other ways but that is the most simple and fastest way: "noob safe"
I had this issue, what I've done has been to close and start Unity again, sometimes you can type in. Don't know if it will help.
I installed Unity 5.2.2f1 from the aur on my Antergos and had the same problem. When i start unity as administrator the problem disappears and i can type everywhere.
I don't know if this is the right place but there is also a weird bug. I normally use i3 window manager on Ubuntu 14.04 x64 but it's impossible to login Unity using it. So I installed fluxbox and finally logged in and then switched back to i3 window manager.
But the thing is, in play mode when I use arrow keys to control my character, Unity suddenly focuses other windows such as inspector window or console window. So it never focuses Game window and this makes impossible to test the game.
ye i have same issue with that from 5.1, my workaround is just to change controls so insted left right use ad or somting
Same problem on Ubuntu 15.10 with Unity. Trying to install Fluxbox for now.
EDIT: Login with Fluxbox was successful!
One might wonder what kind of desktop environment the porters of this editor use, when it's not even tested in two of the most commonly used graphical environments today: Gnome and Unity?
And I don't mean this post in a snarky way, I am genuinely curious.
A peculiar sidenote: In Fluxbox one can sign on, but the editor never shows up when you start a new project.
I have the same problem with Ubuntu 14.04. Cannot type anywhere when starting unity for the first time with registration page. When logging in with fluxbox windows manager, Unity works. But if I switch back to my Gnome Classic window manager, I pass the registration screen, but then I cannot type anywhere when I try to create a new project.
There is some seriously wrong with this unity release, using some kind of obsure way of accessing the keyboard.
Had this issue on Kubuntu 15.10. Switching to AMD fglrx seemed to fix it, though it may have been a fluke since text entry did not work in the first-install survey that followed after log-in.
Edit: Confirmed text entry doesn't work anywhere else in Unity that appears to use the web browser component. Entering text in the standard GUI works fine, but not in the asset store or any of the dialogues of the launcher ('Create new project', etc.)
The same problem on CentOS 7
