I'm trying to get lightdm to act like a display manager and provide a remote xsession to Xming running on Windows. Its more of an exercise just to see if I could do it, since I can use PuTTY and X11 forward all the clients I like.

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.
Just switched from LXDM to LightDM also.It seems that there is somebody trying to implement systemd-logind support for LightDM.And the developers of LightDM welcomes the patch.https://bugs.launchpad.net/lightdm/+bug/930488So maybe what we need to do is just wait for some time.
Since Ubuntu 11.10 Oneiric, LightDM replaces GDM as the default display manager.If you want to manage lightdm you can use Simple LightDM Manager.Currently this tool only supports chaging background and logo
