Re: Getting orca started in lightdm

How would one do this in Ubuntu-Mate? It's been suggested that I add the unity-greeter package, in order to get a talking login; this grabs a bunch of unity and gnome dependencies I probably don't need. I have no lightdm.conf in /etc/ or in /etc/lightdm but I do have /etc/lightdm/lightdm-gtk-greeter-ubuntu-mate.conf among others.

Any suggestions?

lightdm will apparently be the default dm for non-gnome DE such as
XFCE, LXDE, MATE.  ATM it never auto-start Orca, some code would be
needed for this.  No keyboard shortcut is available either to start
it by hand.  I'm thinking about using the greeter-wrapper hook for
this: the gnome-orca package would provide the following script as

orca --replace --no-setup --disable splash-window &
exec $*

and then the user can easily use it in lightdm.conf:
