Maybe a question that’s more linked to the choose of desktop, but i am curious about that. Your choose plus a small “why” can maybe help some people, me included, to choose. Lightdm is good but no go for me, too much interface clutter and mouse and key clicks to get logged in, so now on gdm.
But gdm is buggy on my system, that’s why i search further.
@fernandomaroto has point me too sddm, that i will try in the coming day’s.
Important display manager functionalities for me:
- all user login (direct username plus password field)
- desktop switch
All direct visible and reageable, and maybe date and time.
