• Display manager not working


    I removed deepin and installed kde plasma. Now I want to reinstall deepin but ever since I installed kde I get this console instead of a gui login. Moreover when I try to open a dm I get the following error:
    ![alt text](image url

    Please help, I wanna use deepin again.

  • you need to disable the old dm before you can enable a new on, or you can force it, then you need only one command:

    sudo systemctl -f enable gdm
    

    or disable the old one:

    sudo systemctl disable lightdm
    

    and enable the new one:

    sudo systemctl enable gdm
    

    (b.t.w. reading what the error say can help)
