Hello,

I would like to use lightdm as DM instead of the default sddm in KDE/plasma. Following the advice in this post (https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-1055566.html) I replaced sddm with lightdm accordingly.
However, booting always ends up on the command line.

My settings are
Code:
cat /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf |grep greeter-session
greeter-session = lightdm-kde-greeter
#greeter-session=example-gtk-gnome

ls /usr/share/xgreeters/
lightdm-kde-greeter.desktop


And error is given in the log:
Code:
cat /var/log/lightdm/lightdm.log
[+0.00s] DEBUG: Logging to /var/log/lightdm/lightdm.log
[+0.00s] DEBUG: Starting Light Display Manager 1.16.7, UID=0 PID=3805

[+0.01s] DEBUG: Seat seat0: Failed to find session configuration lightdm-gtk-greeter
[+0.01s] DEBUG: Seat seat0: Failed to create greeter session

Despite the setting for the greeter in /etc/lightdm.conf to lightdm-kde-greeter, it still looks for the default lightdm-gtk-greeter (lightdm was pulled in with USE=-gtk).
How can I change this?

BTW, I followed the wiki for the settings, and Ido not have a NVIDIA graphics driver

Code:
# cat /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf | grep -v ^#
[LightDM]

greeter-session=lightdm-kde-greeter
session-wrapper=/etc/lightdm/Xsession
[Seat:*]
greeter-session=lightdm-kde-greeter
session-wrapper=/etc/lightdm/Xsession

[XDMCPServer]

[VNCServer]

The one under [Seat:*] is the necessary one! :wink:

HTH, cheers

You made my day :D . Thanks a million.

Cross-checked with the Gentoo lightdm-Wiki, it is not in there.
