[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#762729: lightdm: shows systemd-related error on reconfigure when kdm is the default

Package: lightdm
Version: 1.10.1-3
Severity: normal

I have kdm set to be the default display manager, although I also have
lightdm installed for testing purposes.

After switching from sysvinit to systemd, when running
"dpkg-reconfigure lightdm", after confirming my kdm choice, I get the
following error:

ERROR: /lib/systemd/system/kdm.service is the selected default display manager but does not exist

This message does not occur when I do the same choice with
"dpkg-reconfigure kdm" (which apparently does not know about systemd),
but does not appear either when I "dpkg-reconfigure slim" (which does
seem to know about systemd).
