That's ironic, Xfce recommend lightdm as DM for the gtk2 theme, and the
upcomimng xfce-gtk-engine 3.1 drop gtk3 support.

looking oxygen keep the gtk3 in AUR gtk3 only themes tend to use gtk3 and
gtk2 only thend to use gtk or gtk2, I will preffer keep the 3 in the name.

Or Xfce4 users, the upcoming xfce4 release is gtk2, and only after that the
migration to gtk3 will start.
so a gtk2-greeter will be apreciated until xfce drop gtk2, and dont forget
that LXDM is now presumably unmaintained or in low maintainance since they
migrate to QT
