Package: lightdm
Version: 1.0.0-3
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

Steps to reproduce:

* install both QT and GTK greeter
* select QT greeter
* remove QT greeter


* lightdm is still configured to use QT greeter

Expected results:

* lightdm is reconfigured to use GTK greeter

Moreover, when both greeters are installed, one can use
'dpkg-reconfigure lightdm-gtk-greeter' to select a greeter.  But when
only GTK greeter is installed, dpkg-reconfigure does not allow you to
do that and (removed) QT greeter is left configured.  So you have to
change the greeter manually in the configuration file.

Also, I am not sure about that, but would not it be more natural if
greeter selection is part of lightdm debconf instead of GTK/QT
