I had exactly the same problems as described above, but eventually found 
a workaround which fixed it for me:

First, I used lightdm-gtk-greeter-settings to play around with some 
settings and ended up with this /etc/lightdm/lightdm-gtk-greeter.conf:

background = #000000
hide-user-image = true
allow-debugging = true

lightdm was working again, but looked kind of ugly. Then I deleted 
/etc/lightdm/lightdm-gtk-greeter.conf and to my surprise, that fixed it!

I tried a lot more like re-installing "ligthdm*", but can't reconstruct 
this in all details. I hope this post is still useful!
