Package: lightdm-gtk-greeter
Version: 1.8.5-1
Severity: normal

Hi maintainer,

Specifying a default-user-image in /etc/lightdm/lightdm-gtk-greeter.conf has no
effect when greeter-hide-users=true is set in /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf.

The no-name default user image still shows in the greeter, even though I have
specified an alternative image in the config file to be shown.

This was reported on Launchpad:

and has been fixed upstream:

Upstream version 1.9.0 should contain the fix.

Many thanks,
