What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

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.
