Source: lightdm
Severity: minor

Dear maintainer,

if lightdm is running and the user runs "dpkg --purge lightdm" the package is removed and the postscript file shows an error about a problem to remove the config files because lightdm is running.

The problem is you cannot remove the config files anymore. The user needs to exit X11, install the lightdm package again and then purge it.

Thanks a lot for your work in lightdm.

Best Regards,
