    two GNOME sessions

    /usr/share/wayland-sessions/gnome.desktop
    /usr/share/xsessions/gnome.desktop
    

    this two files are the same, and both where read by lightdm…

    pacman -Qo /usr/share/wayland-sessions/gnome.desktop
    /usr/share/wayland-sessions/gnome.desktop is owned by gnome-session 3.24.1-1

    pacman -Qo /usr/share/xsessions/gnome.desktop
    /usr/share/xsessions/gnome.desktop is owned by gnome-session 3.24.1-1

    I do not know what for is the /usr/share/wayland-sessions/ as usually entries are under /usr/share/xsessions/
    Maybe something like a placholder for the time when we use wayland only 😉

  • we have this line inside /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf :
    #sessions-directory=/usr/share/lightdm/sessions:/usr/share/xsessions:/usr/share/wayland-sessions

    add the line:
    sessions-directory=/usr/share/lightdm/sessions:/usr/share/xsessions
    to /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf under the original will do the trick
