Hi Denis.

I don't know why your account got deactivated this way, but it might be easy for you to reactivate yourself. Just go to your overview page and click on Edit details. This will get to your +edit page. From there, just change the name field to whatever you want and click Save Changes.

If that doesn't work for you, follow up here and I'll get a Launchpad administrator to give you a hand.

Hi Barry,
On +edit page I can change Display Name: "Denis" only. Second field Name: "denis-compulab-deactivatedaccount" seems can`t be changed, the reason: "This user has a PPA and may not be renamed." I will be happy if you delete this empty ppa.

Hope for administrator help.

I've disabled the PPA and renamed the account to denis-compulab

Thanks, Tom
