lubuntu-meta (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

precise and quantal lubuntu-desktop fail to coexist with other desktops. eg:

  o boot ubuntustudio-12.04.1-dvd-i386.iso
  o install, boot
  o apt-get update
  o apt-get dist-upgrade
  o apt-get install screen vim vim-doc
  o apt-get install lubuntu-desktop

at this point login lubuntu desktop works

  o apt-get install edubuntu-desktop

but at this point login lubuntu desktop fails. login ubuntustudio desktop still works. but attempting login lubuntu desktop merely retuns directly to display manager.

under saucy, satisfyingly, i have lubuntu-desktop and edubuntu-desktop installed, and can login to lubuntu just fine.

under precise, quantal, raring, AND trusty, however, after installing both lubuntu-desktop and edubuntu-desktop, logins to lubuntu fail, either returning directly to the display manager with no message, or hanging showing a blank screen.

as of 2013-11-6 this bug either isn't currently surfacing or is fixed in trusty.
