After installing OSSEC in Luna, LightDM can not find /usr/share/xgreeters/default.desktop and just stops. Uninstalling OSSEC does not help.


Link default.desktop to pantheon-greeter.desktop:

cd /usr/share/xgreeters  
sudo ln -s pantheon-greeter.desktop default.desktop

    I tried to mark it answered yesterday, but stackexchange makes you wait 2 days to mark your own answer as the solution -- a necessary speed hump to prevent abuse, I assume. Aug 18 '15 at 17:00
