Description of problem:
After updating to lightdm-1.7.9-1.fc20.x86_64 the session chooser doesn't display anymore with lightdm-gtk-1.6.0-1.fc20.x86_64.
Means clicking on the icon doesn't have any effect.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Updating lightdm
2. restart the system from rescue mode
3. try to set another session than the last one

Actual results:
I can't switch from last mate session to cinnamon session in lightdm.

Expected results:
This should work

Additional info:
If i use lightdm-kde-1.7.9-1.fc20.x86_64 switching session works well.
So i quess lightdm-gtk needs to be fixed.

I tested that same combination (albeit local builds) on f19 before updating rawhide.  It all worked well (on f19), and didn't exhibit the problem you describe. :(

Will hopefully have time to whip up a real rawhide box here soon, and do some testing of my own...

lightdm-gtk-1.6.0-3 rebuilt against lightdm-1.7.x reportedly fixes this. 

Mustve been some silent abi breakage in lightdm-gobject bindings

This update fix only partially the issue.
After a system start the session-, and language-switcher displayed correctly and are working.
But if i logout from session or try to switch the user, lightdm only displayed the 'unlock' mask instead of normal login window.
Also session-, and language-switcher won't be displayed.
I quess this is maybe another issue.
Comment 5 Wolfgang Ulbrich 2013-08-19 06:06:36 EDT
For the record, same happend if i logout or switch user from cinnamon.
Starting the system again from rescue mode is the only way to get the normal login window back.

session-switcher is still broken here, tbh I see no difference with lightdm-gtk-1.6.0-3
Comment 7 Rex Dieter 2013-08-19 08:38:02 EDT
switching and chooser are fairly different items, lets get a new bug for the switcher thing.
