Package: lightdm
Version: 1.8.8-1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

I did an installation (Debian testing) just with task-standard.
After rebooting I did the following:

	# aptitude install task-gnome-desktop
	# debconf-set-selections lightdm.debconf

	lightdm lightdm/daemon_name     string  /usr/sbin/lightdm
	lightdm shared/default-x-display-manager        select  lightdm

	# aptitude install lightdm

Then appeared the configuration dialog asking for the default Display Manager
(gdm3 or lightdm). I used debconf-set-selections to avoid it, so I was
expecting it had worked.
