Package: lightdm-qt-greeter
Version: 1.0.9-1
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable

On a bare system with almost no packages installed, I decided to try out lightdm.

    apt-get install lightdm lightdm-qt-greeter

will lead to a system without working X login.

    apt-get install lightdm-gtk-greeter

on the other hand will result in a working setup.
