    [solved][FAILED] Failed to start Light Display Manager. See "sysemctl status lightdm.service" for details.


    Hi,
    I just did a clean install of antergos-2015.04.18-x86_64.iso from http://build.antergos.com/browse/testing. While installation everything seemed to went fine (chose Cinnamon) but after reboot I get this boot error message: “[FAILED] Failed to start Light Display Manager. See “sysemctl status lightdm.service” for details.” http://image-upload.de/image/wDIbOT/bc696fd8a2.png (Virtualbox). Nothing happens when I wait.

    I resolved with ctrl+alt+f2, login, and:
    systemctl enable lightdm.service
    systemctl start lightdm.service

    After selecting Antergos in grub hit Ctrl + Alt + F2

    Enter following:

    su
    pacman -Rncc lightdm-webkit2-greeter
    pacman -Syy lightdm-webkit-theme-antergos
    systemctl restart lightdm
    

    :thumbsup:

    Thanks. I tried randomly the second suggestion and it works :) Will this error be fixed in the upcoming .iso releases in http://build.antergos.com/browse/testing or as a system update in the final 2015.04.12 release prior installation?
