who would I want LightDM when GDM is the DM that comes with GNOME in the first place?
If the above statement should apply to any and each one of the DMs Antergos supports or will be supporting in the future, then we would have to employ all kinds of native Desktop Managers for each and every Desktop Environment. That would be a total mess!
We need a unified Antergos DM with its own logo and character. Here, the devs have done an excellent work. It is BEAUTIFUL!
The problem is eliminated to Gnome, which unfortunately is our default DE. Unfortunately not in terms of my own preferences, but because as default, it is the most widely installed, thus a major drawback to someone unaware of what he/she has got to do to apply power settings.
So, in my opinion, if nothing better can be done, some info should be given in some form of a notice.
I agree on all counts. However, the DM is not very important to me personally. I see it once in the blue moon since I do not reboot very often, but the Antegros implementation of LightDM is the best I’ve seen. I like the dull old GDM as well though. It feels safe and known. All of this would be resolved with information somewhere strategic to avoid waste of time after Antegros is installed. It’s just such a downer having that kind of problem as your “Welcome to Antegros” experience. I did have problems with ZFS also which I kinda resolved, but I decided to move back to btrfs since that is another known to me (just like GDM) :)
