Package revision 2 of version 1:1.28.0 (1:1.28.0-2) of lightdm puts "org.freedesktop.DisplayManager.conf" at the wrong path (doubling up a directory name), and LightDM therefore fails to start.

I was able to make LightDM start again on my system by moving it to the correct path, as follows:
mv /usr/share/dbus-1/dbus-1/system.d/org.freedesktop.DisplayManager.conf /usr/share/dbus-1/system.d/
This task depends upon

Yup. Downgrading to 1:1.28.0-1 also fixes the issue. Preferred this to not mess with package-controlled files.

Sure. I don't advise the fix I used. The fix I used was just to confirm the extent of the bug.

Faced the same issue after upgrading to 1:1.28.0-2, downgrading back to 1:1.28.0-1 also fixed the issue.
