View Full Version : [xubuntu] Replace GDM with SLIM?

April 22nd, 2010, 07:49 PM

I`m using Xubuntu 9.10 and really want to replace the GDM with SLIM. I installed it, i can run it by switching to tty1 and stopping GDM
sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop and starting slim
/etc/init.d/slim start It works ok, i can login and start my XFCE session from there. I changed my default manager from GDM to Slim by running
sudo dpkg-reconfigure slim. But when i reboot my computer, the booting process stops at the point when it has to launch GDM (or Xsplash? Not really sure how the whole process works). When i revert back to GDM being my default manager, everything works fine. Any suggestions? Has anyone accomplished this before?

The same thing on Ubuntu 10.04.

This all reminds me of one joke...

What`s the difference between an advanced Ubuntu user and advanced Gentoo user? Advanced Gentoo user can always answer avanced ubuntu user questions, but not vice versa :))

What's in /etc/X11/default-display-manager ?
