Hello Klaus, or anyone else affected,

Accepted lightdm-gtk-greeter into precise-proposed. The package will
build now and be available at
/lightdm-gtk-greeter/1.1.5-0ubuntu1.1 in a few hours, and then in the
-proposed repository.

Please help us by testing this new package.  See for documentation how to
enable and use -proposed.  Your feedback will aid us getting this update
out to other Ubuntu users.

If this package fixes the bug for you, please change the bug tag from
verification-needed to verification-done.  If it does not, change the
tag to verification-failed.  In either case, details of your testing
will help us make a better decision.

Further information regarding the verification process can be found at .  Thank you in

** Changed in: lightdm-gtk-greeter (Ubuntu Precise)
       Status: Triaged => Fix Committed

** Tags added: verification-needed
