That looks to me like an issue with not loaded .Xressources or
something. I have no idea how gdm3 loads those though, but I think it
might be in the /etc/gdm3/Xsession script or something.

Try to set session-wrapper in /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf to the path of
that script, then retry and report back.
