Sorry for that
To explain better, there are hidden configuration files and folders in your home folder. These contain the preferences and settings for your applications, as configured for your user. To see them, open a file browser and press Ctrl+H or from the terminal run "ls -a". Because of application versions between LM9 and LM11 differ, you need to have the LM11 hidden files and not the LM9 hidden files (this will mess things up).
I'm not sure of the steps jimzhong shares, they seem complete, as long as the ID of your user on LM9 is the same as on LM11 and you don't
have an encrypted home folder on either!
Then possibly it will work if you remove all the hidden folders and files from the LM9 /home, and then proceed with jimzhong's steps and move all the hidden folders and files from LM11 over to the LM9 /home.
