After the last update I can't seem to be able to login via lightdm. X Server dies with
Fatal server error:
no screens found
(EE) Please also check the log file at "/var/log/Xorg.1.log" for additional information.
Server terminated with error (1). Closing log file.
xinit: giving up
xinit: unable to connect to X server: Connection refused
xinit: server error

Switching to a VT and launching startx seems to work OK. Xorg.X.log does not seem to provide any relevant information. I am using a custom session in /usr/share/xsessions called Xinitrc that just calls startx. My .xinitrc contains

xrdb -merge ~/.Xdefaults
urxvtd -q -o -f &
exec dbus-launch --auto-syntax --exit-with-session startxfce4

I need rebuild this ackage now, because consolekit is deprecated, I'm right???

Does anyone else notice this taking a long time to stop with systemd? I needed to decrease the timeout so my system doesn't take a long time to poweroff.

Addendum: livesys-late.service can probably be removed too (along with getty@tty1.service), it seems to be something Fedora-specific.

Here are some suggestions:

1. Now that a common PAM file, /etc/pam.d/system-login, exists on Arch, lightdm.pam can be replaced with this (taken from kdm):

2. Remove WantedBy= from lightdm.service ( depends on display-manager.service by default so it's not needed anymore).

3. Or you could simply replace lightdm.service with Fedora's version, which already does (2.) plus some other goodies:
It has some nice additions, like Documentation, Restart and BusName, but I don't get why they disable tty1. I suggest using the Fedora version without the tty1 parts. (My guess is that Fedora just copied that from gdm, which needs tty1 for itself, but that's not the case with lightdm.)
(Also note: Even though Fedora's After= contains plymouth-quit.service, it's not an error if you don't have plymouth installed. I think this would mean one .service file would work both with and without plymouth instead of having a separate lightdm-plymouth.service. But I'm not sure.)

The above has been tested to work on my computer, but hopefully it should work everywhere.

lightdm-plymouth.service moved to plymouth package

btw, you should probably make sure lightdm.service is aliased (symlinked) with display-manager.service I think.
"Cannot add dependency job for unit display-manager.service, ignoring: Unit display-manager.service failed to load: No such file or directory. See system logs and 'systemctl status display-manager.service' for details."

The display manager service. Usually this should be aliased (symlinked) to gdm.service or a similar display manager service.

systemd automatically adds dependencies of type After for this target unit to all SysV init script service units with a LSB header referring to the $x-display-manager facility, for compatibility with Debian.
