    Lightdm lost ability to CTRL-ALT-Fn (FC27)

    Hello guys,

    I am just commenting that I had to switch to LXDM, out of Lightdm , reason being:
    when my comp boots, it comes to a login prompt, well if I decide to login there, my session will be "empty" and the reason is that I usually mount /home via truecrypt (or cryptsetup) AFTER the machine boots. This is a very effective security measure.

    All was working fine until this morning when I decided to yum upgrade, and I found out after the reboot, that LIGHTDM did not allow me to CTRL-ALT-Fn out of the login screen into a console (where I usually log in as root and mount the necessarily encrypted stuff for /home to work)

    So, I have decided to switch to LXDM, which still works as expected.

    CTRL-ALT-Fn works fine in lightdm here on F27. I've never checked it before today, and there was another big update today. Perhaps try updating again?

    I think I am running the latest:
    Code:
    uname -a
    Linux nova 4.14.6-300.fc27.x86_64 #1 SMP Thu Dec 14 15:31:24 UTC 2017 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
    but will try again.
