Thank you! It works great now.

I just tested this on Xfce using NetworkManager (nm-applet) with multiple wireless routers (WPA2).

For others who are interested, I have the gnome-keyring package installed and this is enabled in my Xfce startup applications:

Secret Storage Service (GNOME Keyring: Secret Service)
/usr/bin/gnome-keyring-daemon --start --components=secrets

After the first time I tried to connect to a wireless router, I was asked for the WPA2 key, then I was asked to enter a new default keyring password. I used the same exact password as my user account's. Upon connecting to the wireless again, I was greeted with a prompt for the default keyring password, with the option to "Remember". Now, whenever I login with LightDM, I do not need to enter my default keyring password anymore! It works the same, just like on a standard GNOME desktop with GDM.

Please add this to the end of /etc/pam.d/lightdm. This is needed for applicatios, such as NetworkManager (nm-applet), even in a non-GNOME environment (Xfce, LXDE, et al.)

# Allow user to automatically unlock the default gnome-keyring
auth optional
session optional auto_start

I use a custom pam file referencing system-login for everything.

auth include system-login
account include system-login
password include system-login
session include system-login
# Unlock Gnome keyring
-auth optional
-session optional auto_start

You should also add this line to /etc/pam.d/lightdm:
session required
Without it:
$ ulimit -r -l
real-time priority (-r) 0
max locked memory (kbytes, -l) 64
With it (values are from /etc/security/limits.d/99-audio.conf, owned by jack2):
real-time priority (-r) 99
max locked memory (kbytes, -l) unlimited

Please add:
-session optional
to /etc/pam.d/lightdm

@android_808 may I suggest you create a forum topic and post your config and both lightdm and gtk-greeter logs. Without this minimum detail it is impossible to work out what is causing your issue, let alone fix it.

I've had nothing but grief since I updated this and gtk-greeter earlier today. Went through config files, merged appropriate changes etc etc.

Login screen displays fine. Enter password, login and let the wait begin. Eventually desktop (Xfce) appears but as soon as I do anything it stops working. Click menu for example, menu appears but keyboard and mouse proceed to stop working. Desktop also appears incorrectly, putting icons underneath the panel, conky is not transparent.

I had 1.2.2 and greeter 1.1.5 kicking about so I've downgraded to them with systemd fix for tty.

Please add a lightdm-plymouth.service (similar to gdm-plymouth.service) to provide a seamless transition with plymouth.

Description=LightDM Display Manager




Stemp commented on 2012-08-07 07:03

There should be a line in lightdm.service about display-manager.service like in gdm.

The patch to source .xinitrc seems wrong.
First of all, ~/.xinitrc is run by startx, similarly as xdm runs ~/.xsession

Second, running ~/.xinitrc depends on there beeing a /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.d/ directory
