Ubuntu: Is Lightdm-webkit-greeter necessary to run Ubuntu 14.04 LTS?



Question:

I want to get rid of lightdm-webkit-greeter due to the errors when I boot into Ubuntu 14.04LTS. Is it possible to run Ubuntu without lightdm? I don't want to mess up my system by removing it. I have everything set perfect. Keep in mind that I am using Noobslab's MacBuntu environment.


Solution:1

According to noobslab manual installing their lightdm-webkit-greeter theme may lead to errors. You can remove their theme, reboot and see if it helped.

sudo apt-get remove mbuntu-y-lightdm-v5  

lightdm-webkit-greeter itself shouldn't be removed since it's the app that does the log in and desktop environment start.
