While Ubuntu's product is built on the shoulders of Debian, the packages are not compatible.

Debian has a lightdm package, so you could get the Ubuntu source and reverse engineer the changes to lightdm. That means grab the graphics, see if you can sort out the configuration changes and apply them your Debian distro.

Good luck!

I didn't found any good looking Greeting/Login screen in lightdm. Are there any other options available? I am asking this because o dont have time to write my own config file. I just want to change login screen for a period of time for some change.
