Fix LightDM error "The name org.freedesktop.Accounts was not provided by any .service files"

I found such a log in LightDM log (/var/log/lightdm/lightdm.log).

WARNING: Error getting user list from org.freedesktop.Accounts: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name org.freedesktop.Accounts was not provided by any .service files
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

It means the system lacked D-Bus AccountsService of freedesktop.org.
This is my Artix (Arch-based) Linux output:

$ pacman -Ss accountsservice
world/accountsservice 0.6.55-3
    D-Bus interface for user account query and manipulation
extra/accountsservice 0.6.55-3
    D-Bus interface for user account query and manipulation
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

I installed the package:

$ doas pacman -Sy accountsservice
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

then reboot and the warning (error) log had gone ☺
