Package: lightdm-gtk-greeter
Version: 2.0.1-2
Severity: normal
Tags: upstream

Dear Maintainer,
   I get a black screen when lightdm-gtk-greeter is called by lightdm via XDMCP
for a Xephyr or a VNC display.
(eg. First enable xdmcp in lightdm.conf, then: Xephyr -query localhost)

Note: using lightdm-kde-greeter or lightdm-razor-greeter as a lightdm-greeter
alternative solve the issue.

Best regards.
