Description Heiko Adams 2013-07-29 11:44:56 EDT
Description of problem:
Lightdm's gtk greeter fails to start. It just switches permanently between tty1 and greeter. Just like it gets started and quit immediately.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install lightdm gtk greeter
2. Enable lightdm as prefered dm
3. reboot system

Actual results:
Lightdm's gtk greeter doesn't start

Expected results:
Lightdm's gtk greeter should start normaly

Additional info:
The only workaround atm is to use another dm like lxdm or gdm

What DE are you using?
Comment 2 Heiko Adams 2013-07-29 15:04:37 EDT
Xfce and sometimes Gnome 3 but I guess the prolem is what I found in x-0-greeter.log:

> ** (process:1177): WARNING **: Failed to open CK session: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.ConsoleKit.Manager.GeneralError: Unable to get information about the calling process

BTW: Lightdm is at version 1.6 and the gtk-greeter is at version 1.5.1 - is that correct?
