• Lightdm and GDM


    Guys, I wanted to try Wayland, and found that I needed to replace GDM for Lightdm. being the nub i am, I just went into aur, uninstalled GDM and installed Lightdm (d’oh).

    Thing is, now I can’t get past the login window, and everyhting I do just makes the login manager restart.

    Is there a simple way to fix this, or have i broken all the things? :O

  • Ctrl + Alt + F2 -> login -> password, and then sudo systemctl enable gdm. More on how to switch between DMs: https://forum.antergos.com/topic/1011/solved-switching-from-lightdm-to-gdm.

  • procedure is this:

    sudo pacman -S gdm
    sudo systemctl -f enable gdm
    

    reboot

    the -f (–force) option to systemctl will force to disable other DM and then enable the choosen gdm…

  • Hi, and thanks for answers!

    Being the terrible nub I am, i wanted to switch to lightgdm again. When i try tho, I get the command ‘Unit file lightgdm.service does not exist’

    What to do? I had a little troubles googling it, as the results involved swithcing TO GDM.
