LightDM doesn't allow manual username entry when choosing AD on install

Bug Description

Pretty much as the title says really.

If you perform a Ubuntu MATE 22.04 LTS install and tick 'Active Directory' during the installation, and actually successfully get it to join the domain at that time...

Then once it has installed and rebooted, LightDM doesn't actually give you any option to manually enter the AD user you want to log in as.

The culprit is... /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf.d/91-arctica-greeter-mate.conf

Which only has this setting in it, which is set to false but should be set to true...


Whilst I'm sure this makes the login experience more "tidy" if you don't use anything like Active Directory (and only have local users), this would seem like a bit of an oversight if the user has actually chosen to use something like Active Directory during setup... as it leaves them completely confused as to how to log in.
