• Changing lightDM greeter issue with starting WM

    I use i3 WM and lightDM with gtk-greeter.

    I am trying to change my greeter to mini-greeter.

    I wrote


    in /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf and

    user = MyUserName

    in /etc/lightdm/lightdm-mini-greeter.conf.

    It partially worked because I got the expected greeter interface when I rebooted, but when I entered my password it didn’t do anything. I therefore came back to gtk-greeter.

    Why changing the greeter made lightDM not start i3 and how to fix it ?


  • I fixed this issue:

    In /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf





    I don’t know why it worked with the previous greeter, but minimal-greeter apparently doesn’t look for the WM to boot it the same files as gtk-greeter.
