Hi Mark,

Well of course this is a very minor bug or not a bug at all, but it seemed strange to me that lightdm-gtk-greeter.conf is handled via the "alternatives" system, so I thought it wasn't expected to be modified by other tools.
In other words, that lightdm-gtk-greeter.conf-devuan-cinnabar was expected to be left alone, while lightdm-gtk-greeter-settings should have created a new alternative to be modified.
Very minor stuff, as I said :)

I am not sure what you expect ot happen here?

If you edit the settings with this tool, files in /etc/lightdm will be
changed. If you need to restore, you can always reinstall.

Or am I missing something or misunderstanding you?

Package: lightdm-gtk-greeter-settings
Version: 1.2.2-2

When you use lightdm-gtk-greeter-settings to modify LightDM's greeter 
and press "save", it modifies /etc/lightdm/lightdm-gtk-greeter.conf.
The problem is that (at least under Devuan Beowulf)
/etc/lightdm/lightdm-gtk-greeter.conf
is a symlink to
/etc/alternatives/lightdm-gtk-greeter.conf
which in turn is a symlink to
/etc/lightdm/lightdm-gtk-greeter.conf-devuan-cinnabar

So you end up losing the original lightdm-gtk-greeter.conf-devuan-cinnabar.
