[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#664585: Bug#664585: lightdm-qt-greeter shows a blinking tty cursor, nothing else

* dpkg-reconfigure lightdm
-> lightdm

* dpkg-reconfigure lightdm-qt-greeter
-> lightdm-qt-greeter

* dpkg-reconfigure lightdm-gtk-greeter
-> lightdm-qt-greeter

Yet, it will still start lightdm-gtk-greeter, not the qt variant.

To test, I removed lightdm-gtk-greeter from my system and I am now
back to a blank screen with blinking cursor. It _only_ removed
lightdm-gtk-greeter and none of the dependencies.

I have constant access to this machine for some time now and I don't
need it to be actually useful. You can reply here or poke RichiH on
freenode/oftc for a concerted debugging effort.
