When selecting my user name on the lightdm login screen, I get a blank screen and can't login; the greeter has just crashed.

With LightDM installed on boot up I have a blank screen and it hangs after battery check [OK], if I uninstall lightdm and use gdm, it hangs on the Ubuntu 11.10 text bootup splash. To login I have to drop to tty and 'sudo gdm' if I sudo lightdm I get a blank screen again.

Please consider to report a bug...
