I'm trying to use
lightdm-webkit-greeter instead of the default
unity-greeter on Ubuntu 13.04.
First I installed the greeter:
sudo apt-get install lightdm-webkit-greeter
Then I ran this command to change the greeter:
sudo /usr/lib/lightdm/lightdm-set-defaults --greeter lightdm-webkit-greeter
Then I tested the greeter:
All I see is a black screen, although I can move my mouse. I've rebooted to test this as well, and it's the same result. Other greeters, such as
lightdm-kde-greeter work fine.
