Bug Description

I just installed Lubuntu from the July 26/11 daily iso, after the install process had finished, my user name was in the list of users. After updates, only the guest user and other were available. Choosing other, allows me to enter my user name and password, allowing to access the desktop.

Fixed in 0.9.4. When the accounts service was not installed it wasn't detecting this correctly and not falling back to using passwd.

This bug was fixed in the package lightdm - 0.9.3-0ubuntu4

lightdm (0.9.3-0ubuntu4) oneiric; urgency=low

  * Updated to current trunk, that's a candidate version version for the next
    update, it fixes those issues:
    - login doesn't work for ecryptfs users (lp: #823775, #824594)
    - "lightdm-gtk-greeter segfaults in get_user_iter when adding a new user"
    (lp: #822470)
    - fix fallback from org.freedesktop.Accounts to passwd format (lp: #817835)
    - empty autologin-user should not be passed to pam (lp: #817581)
  * debian/
    - build-depends on quilt, it's needed with source v1
    - don't build-depends on valac, vala is not used in the current version
  * debian/lightdm.install:
    - install the manpages as well
  * debian/lightdm.manpages:
    - dropped, it's installed by the upstream make install
  * debian/rules:
    - use the quilt rule
  * debian/source/format:
    - use source v1, it works better with vcs workflows
