Package: lightdm
Version: 1.0.10-1
Severity: normal

i have a fully automated installation with preseed files.
Here, the corresponding content of my preseed file:

> d-i pkgsel/include string \
> ...
> lightdm lightdm-gtk-greeter \
> ...

During installation of my Debian system, there is the message of the
already installed file /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf
I have the choice:
- Installation of this file with the version of the package maintainer
- Keep the already installed version
- See the difference of the two versions
To see this message, i have to switch to the console with Alt+F4.
I can't continue the installation.
If i want to overwrite the currently installed version, nothing happens
at the console.

If i have a look at the console, there is lightdm-gtk-greeter installed
After installation of lightdm-gtk-greeter, there is the package lightdm

For more informations, i have opened a new shell with Alt+F2.
The content of the currently installed file /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf
from lightdm-gtk-greeter:

> [SeatDefaults]
> greeter-sessions=lightdm-gtk-greeter

If you need more informations, please let me know.

Best regards
