I am building a LTSP environment with LDAP authentication. I have configured the LTSP,LDAP server and client perfectly. I checked with getent passwd command in LTSP/LDAP client. I can see my LDAP users details.

When I booted my LTSP thin client, I am able to login with LDAP user credentials in Alt+Ctrl+F1 mode. But, Not able to login through GUI( lightdm ). See the logs which is from LTSP/LDAP Client.

/var/log/ldm.log:
