So I am running the Cinnamon DE. I love this DE and have been using it for a long time. but I wanted to go back to Gnome which I love just as much as Cinnamon. So I installed gnome and gnome-extra. I also made sure gdm was installed (which should be provided in the gnome-extra package anyways. I restart the PC and I try to load into gnome. But I receive the “uh-oh” error.
I believe Cinnamon uses lightdm correct? Should I run “systemctl disable lightdm” and enable gdm? Or can both be enabled just not running at the same time? I know cinnamon doesn’t like gdm, but I would like to keep both gnome and cinnamon installed and switch back in forth depending on my mood. SO I guess both displays must stay installed.
Is there any logs I can provide that would help with the gnome crash? I think my xorg log may help some but do let me know so I don’t waste anybody’s time.
