• \[SOLVED\]gdm and lockscreen


    hi, another question about gdm.

    also i like the antergos default dm, i want to give it a try, and after installing it via the official repo, i did:

    systemctl enable gdm

    to enable it, but after rebooting, still the default dm is starting? … also i wonder about how to get the system to lock the screen, i dont have an option, to lock, hibernate or logout myself, is that normal?

    thanks in advance!

  • Hi,

    You must disable lightdm before enabling gdm:

    sudo systemctl disable lightdm  
    sudo systemctl enable gdm
    

    We are currently working on a solution for the lockscreen issue. Until then, you can either stick with gdm or install xscreensaver and keep lightdm. Hope that helps!

    Cheers!
