I installed antergos with gnome yesterday. So far, everything works fine, except lightdm
For testing/playing around, I removed lightdm and installed gdm yesterday. However, I felt that gdm slowed down my overall system, especially the gnome shell (??). Thus, I deleted gdm and reinstalled lightdm. Everything works as expected (e.g. I can log-in), except the lock-screen:
- Automatic lock / screensaver does not work. I am not sure, if this worked before my install/reinstall of lightdm. I disabled all gnome related power settings in “power”, but the settings changed in light-locker are not saved (same as: https://forum.antergos.com/topic/5473/gnome-not-locking-screen-automatically/15)
- Activating the lock screen using the gnome hotkeys, e.g. “super+l” does not work. This worked before.
I found the following thread https://forum.antergos.com/topic/5465/buttons-go-missing-from-the-system-menu-in-gnome-3 leading me to https://github.com/the-cavalry/light-locker/issues/54 which both deal with the problem, but do not give a definitive answer. However, antergos + gnome ships with lightdm as default, so I assume that there is a way to get it working? Any ideas whats going on here?
Here is some additional info:
