[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#748917: Bug#748917: lightdm: fails to register a logind session
I seem to have found out the cause of this which is to do with the
migration to the systemd init system. I had updated all the packages to
the latest versions in Jessie and everything seemed to be working apart
from no logind session being registered. However, I compile my own
kernels and the kernel I was using was not set up for systemd init to
function fully. I recompiled a kernel in accordance with the systemd
readme file and now everything is working, so the bug can be closed.
Thank you both for your help.
