Description of problem:
LightDM currently takes at least extremely long to start. After plymouth finished the screen stays black for several seconds until lightdm greeter is visible, Loging into my desktop takes also several seconds from pressing "login" button until the desktop environment is starting.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install lightdm
After plymouth has finished the screen stays black for several seconds.
LightDM should be available imidiately after plymouth finishes, like LXDM does.

log from gtk-greeter
Is ConsoleKit-x11 installed?
I'm tempted to mark this as a duplicate of 834427. @Heiko Can you have a look at your selinux log and try the suggested workaround?
At least on my system it doesn't make a difference if consolekit-x11 is installed or not.
it's likely selinux-policy getting in the way, see bug #834427
(a quick-n-dirty test would be to temporarily set selinux to permissive, and reboot)
Yes, I can confirm that it's selinux what makes this trouble
