I am trying to test ArchLinux with Pantheon on a VM on VirtualBox. I am able to install ArchLinux and pacman -S the following packages succesfuly:

  1. xorg-server
  2. xorg-server-utils
  3. virtualbox-guest-utils
  4. pantheon-session-bzr
  5. lightdm-pantheon-greeter-bzr

The next step I take is to edit my /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf to change my greeter_session= to lightdm-pantheon-greeter, but it is not working. This is what I get when I start lightdm:

This screen does not capture any input and after a while stops responding, and some elements are missing.

What am I doing wrong?

I do have 3D acceleration on in my VM settings.
