Hi all,

On xUbuntu Oneiric (not stable then), the lightDM installation

sudo apt-get install lightdm\
                      lightdm-gtk-greeter \

drives me to lightDM login window. It's 0.9.3.

After entering my credentials, I get to a framebuffer screen with the 
boot messages but with the 
http://gdesklets.de/develbook/gfx/cursor_x.png pointer. If I move my 
mouse, it moves with it.

I choosed Xubuntu session.
My system was previously a Natty one upgraded to Oneiric.

Nothing in the lightDM logs: it exits normally and swithches to the XFCE 
session, but there msut be something weird somewhere between.

Starting my XFCE session with "startxfce4" launches it very well.

What should I enalbe in order to have more details in order to get 
helped to get it works?

Right now I bypass the DM by killing it and having my XFCE session with 
"startxfce4" from a tty.
