gtk greeter fails to start
Last modified: 2013-08-16 10:52:12 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):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install lightdm gtk greeter
2. Enable lightdm as prefered dm
3. reboot system
Lightdm's gtk greeter doesn't start
Lightdm's gtk greeter should start normaly
The only workaround atm is to use another dm like lxdm or gdm
What DE are you using?
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?
