Bug Description

The default lightdm-gtk-greeter.config file in Fedora doesn't have a font set. As a result the Login screen has boxes instead of text.

Expected behavior:
LightDM GTK Gretter should use a fallback font when no font is set, e.g.- Sans.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open the config file "/etc/lightdm/lightdm-gtk-greeter.conf" in a text editor
2. Comment the line starting with "font-name"
3. Restart LightDM

The problem doesn't occur in the test mode (lightdm --test-mode).

I've attached a screenshot demonstrating the problem.
