Is there a way to enable face display in the default LightDM greeter in Oneiric? If not, is there another alternative greeter that supports faces?

(I know I can switch back to gdm if necessary, but I assume somebody must have this working with LightDM...)

lightdm-webkit-greeter is under development with some packaging already being done for Ubuntu 11.10.

lightdm-webkit-greeter is a webkit themer for lightdm that allows distros and users to create themes.

There is a lightdm face browser theme proposal but everything is a bit far from final.

Best thing you can do at the moment if you are interested in having a face browser lightdm theme is really subscribe to the project and keep checking the progress being done.
