LightDm Configuration/Installation


Hi Guys,

I am trying to configure and install lightDM but to my dismay there is no documentation on how to do so?
i.e. should I just go with the general
Code:
./configure --prefix=/usr
make
make install
code segment or is there anything else specific to lightDM?

The README of the source code I downloaded is empty :/ As a result I am a tad bit clueless!! SO I would greatly appreciate some advice on what I should do.

Also I read that I would be needing a greeter as well. Any suggestions on a good one?
