Seen similar question many times on AskUbuntu, but most answers was bout unity-helpers or gconf ...canonical... etc, so this actually doesn't seem to work.
The problem is that I decided to move to lightdm from gdm.
Is there any way I can use LightDM themed with the Unity greeter with a systemd-based init? The lightdm-unity-greeter package available in the AUR depends upon lightdm-ubuntu, which conflicts with lightdm. lightdm provides a systemd unit, but lightdm-ubuntu does not. Is there another way to have lightdm-ubuntu start on boot even though it doesn't have systemd support?P.S.
Does anyone know if there is a way to change the font in the Ubuntu 12.04 login screen (lightDM)? I've tried manually creating a /etc/lightdm/unity-greeter.conf file and manually entering another font instead of Ubuntu there, but that appears to do nothing. Is there a way to change this?
Unity-greeter crashes, and constantly respawns, not letting me in. So, I configured auto login but that won't start anything except Unity session. I changed the lightdm.conf file to run Xubuntu but Unity still shows up. If I create a new user, it will start in Xubuntu just fine.
cfr: "So did you or did you not make the change specified in https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php … 5#p1304985 which pointed out that you had set greeter-session incorrectly?"Yes. While I thought I had written the matter clearly, evidently I did not make myself clear for you.
Hi all,I'm having problems getting Lightdm to start my desktop session. I'm using the lightdm-webkit-greeter with this theme, and bspwm as my wm. On boot, I get to the lightdm greater just fine, but when I select a user and login, lightdm freezes and the bspwm session doesn't appear to start. To login, I have to ctrl+alt+F2 to another virtual terminal and start bspwm with startx.
