In addition... Until we split out the greeter into a proper LightDM greeter, we have a goofy, insecure, demo method of setting password/pin:

Edit/Create the file ~/.unity8-greeter-demo with the following syntax:


Where password can be "none", "pin", or "keyboard". And passwordValue is either the PIN value or passphrase, depending on the type of password.

Obviously, this is just a temporary solution, but it should be easy to implement in the meantime and will get the UI to work until we have a proper split.
