Bug Description

Under current vivid, lightdm takes very long to appear as starting lightdm is delayed until This is due to /etc/init.d/openvpn having

# Required-Start: $network $remote_fs $syslog
# X-Start-Before: $x-display-manager gdm kdm xdm wdm ldm sdm nodm

which results in lightdm waiting for This is totally unnecessary if you only have openvpn installed for dynamic VPNs, i. e. no auto-start configs in /etc/openvpn/ that happen during boot.

This should be fixed by providing proper systemd units which only add this dependency if there are some actual openvpn autostart configs.

This bug was fixed in the package openvpn - 2.3.2-9ubuntu3

openvpn (2.3.2-9ubuntu3) vivid; urgency=medium

  * Add better_systemd_detection.patch to avoid calling systemd-ask-password
    under upstart. Backported from upstream. (Closes: #747265)
  * Add systemd unit and generator from current Debian package. This avoids
    using the init.d script, which unnecessarily blocks lightdm startup on the
    network becoming online even if there are no auto-start connections
    (LP: #1443489).
