Hi guys, tried both, tried removing GDM and reinstalling&re-enabling LightDM, nothing worked. When booting there was a message that the LightDM service is has duplicate symlinks.
I’ve sorted it out by reinstalling Antergos, as I had split my volumes to / & /home, so just had to reinstall the apps I’m using on top.
Thanks again for the effort! :)
Thank you for the quick reply!
my login and pass didn’t work - got a message that my login or password is incorrect. I just put in “root” and i could move forward. (You can tell I’m not very familiar with this by now, right? :))
this is what i got after following your instructions:
Failed to enable unit: File /etc/systemd/system/display-manager.service already exists and is symlink to /usr/lib/systemd/system/lightdm-plymouth.service.
I sense the next step is something very simple, thanks again for the help! :)
Messed up switching lightDM & GDM - black screen after boot (no login screen)
Hola! Apologies if my post doesn’t abide by any of the forum rules (it’s my first time!)
Total newbie here, used only Ubuntu previously, played around with Fedora for a few months - I’m really just more of a user type of guy ^^. Using the OS as a virtual music recording studio.
However, I managed to screw my installation as described in the subject - even though I followed this guide - trying to switch to GDM - the last point in the guide.
Now when booting there’s a line indicating i did something wrong - it says something along the lines as - two files files are pointing to the display manager service…
I get a black screen after the boot, anyone can guide me through how to boot through a LiveUSB and fix? Again, I’m a total noob when it comes to commands…
I’ve tried to search for some guidance on how to fix this, but to no avail.
Thank’s a bunch in advance!
