• Disable Gnome from starting up


    How can I disable Gnome from auto startup? I only use i3 now. Thanks.

  • do you choose autologin on installation?
    running lightdm as DM?
    logout choose i3 as session and lightdm will save the value…

  • When running htop I see a lot of user “GDM”? I am using lightdm. Thanks.

  • systemctl list-unit-files | grep enabled
    

    will show all enabled services

  • Awesome. Thank You!

  • does is shows:

    gdm.service                                                      enabled
    

    ???

    for lightdm disable autologin with editing its config:

    sudo nano /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf
    

    and comment out this ones:

    #autologin-user=
    #autologin-user-timeout=0
    #autologin-in-background=false
    #autologin-session=
    
  • @joekamprad I am such an idiot. I have been using gdm this whole time. I switched it to lightdm and now it does not load all that gnome stuff. I like gnome but only on occasion.

  • i am using i3-gnome as it gives me mostly all config tools and such from gnome but the more configurable Desktop behovior from i3 ;)

  • @joekamprad that’s pretty cool. how much ram does it grab at boot?
