Key issue : From lockscreen to login screen


After pressing Super+L to lock my screen, if I want to unlock it I have to press "Ctrl+Alt+F1" instead of "any key" in order to reach login screen. I don't remember changing anything that could impact that, so I would like to know if this was normal and how to put it back to default behavior.

When you press Super+L what does the screen look like? Is it the same screen if you use Menu->Lock? Or something else?

Yes it's the same. Just a wallpaper with current date and hour.

as with any other issue with gnome, disable any/all extensions, test again. if that fixes it, turn each extension back on 1 at a time until it breaks again.

Ok so the extension doing this was "gnome-shell-extension-arc-menu". I removed it and now it works. I don't really see any difference after removing it so I guess I won't install it back yet.
