Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I really would like to join Ask Ubuntu with my account - but it seems impossible to just connect with my existing account (it was my impression my account could login automatically across multiple sites).

And if I try to login with my existing account (Stack Exchange or Google) is says my account not exists, if I try to "recover" my account I get the message : "No users with that email address".

I am really confused. Not very logically to me. What have I missed?

You need a separate (but linked) account for each site.

Just sign up with the same OpenID as you used here or on Stack Overflow and a linked account will be created for you.
