Default lightdm greeters on gentoo

so the stock gtk greeter is kinda of bland with its computer icon and stuff=
. yes, even with hwoarang's awesome gentoo cow work on USE=3Dbranding :>

i'm thinking something like this http://www.openews.net/2011/developer-demo=
-lightdm-3d-animation-login-screen/ would be cool, but it doesn't seem to b=
e available. there's something called crowd greeter and pantheon greeter, b=
ut neither seems to have received much development attention.

so what do you guys use for your greeter?

As I had pointed out before [1], changing from POSIX to an en_US
locale will have undesirable side effects, like commas as thousands
separators in numbers (because of LC_NUMERIC). Also the defaults of
en_US for LC_MEASUREMENT and LC_PAPER are only useful in the U.S.

So if we change the default (but I still don't see the need), we
should go for a less intrusive setting like:


This would be better than LANG="en_US.utf8" but I would still prefer not
to have any country/region attached to the locale. The C.UTF-8 locale
which Debian uses for this purpose (a UTF-8 locale without side effects)
appears more suitable to me.
