detaching lightdm into background

Bug Description

Hi

When starting /etc/init.d/lightdm (either directly from root console or through SysV init), it will get stuck because lightdm doesn't fork into background when starting.

Please could you add --background option to start-stop-daemon to fix this? (note: the debian lightdm package already does this)

This change is needed for ubuntuBSD (which uses SysV init to manage system daemons).

Thank you!

Debian does it differently - is there any advantage over each method?

I'm wondering if we should just copy the Debian init script entirely, given the Ubuntu version seems very out of date.

Also, a merge proposal is easier to handle than a diff.

Hi

Should work fine. -b is the same as --background

Thanks!

Ah, I missed the -b. Thanks!
