Topic: How to configure lightdm?

Hello. smile

I have freshly installed Hyperbola GNU/Linux-libre.

I have installed (by pacman -S) xorg-server, xf86-video-intel, lightdm, jwm.

I have tried to set up lightdm by Wiki.Gentoo.org: LightDM, but I have got error, there is no service xdm.

Please, how to configure and set up lightdm for automatic start after boot?

Install xorg-xdm:

# pacman -S xorg-xdm

Then, you need to mention lightdm in the file /etc/conf.d/xdm:

DISPLAYMANAGER="lightdm"

And enable the service xdm:

# rc-update add xdm default

Yes, but since systemd has forced a lot of free software projects such as LightDM for its adoption, then XDM is the way to solve it smile

I would to let you know which i've developed new init scripts for our DMs, therefore you now can enable the service directly! \o/

# rc-update add lightdm default

sudo pacman -Syyu --noconfirm xorg xorg-xdm sddm xorg-apps xorg-drivers lxqt enlightenment jwm xfce4 xfce4-goodies mate budgie-desktop cinnamon gnome

As lightweight as LightDM, would SDDM be also recommended to you? Unlikely SDDM is more Qt-specific, and I’m recommending much more desktops to you, but also I’m willing to taste your jwm.
Like EmulatorMan I’m quite advanced in OpenRC, being an init system over my few systems like Parabola, TrueOS, Hyperbola, Devuan, Calculate. smile

SDDM? if its more lightweight I am interested. Otherwise LightDM is fine. smile
