    Question How do you replace SDDM with LightDM in Linux Mint?

    How do you replace SDDM with LightDM in Linux Mint 20.2 Cinnamon?
    You are given an option when installing KDE to choose between SDDM and LightDM, however i choosed LightDM and i want to use SDDM instead.

    Correct me if this is not understandable enough because i installed Linux yesterday.

    Code:
    sudo dpkg-reconfigure sddm
    FYI: you can use `lightdm` instead of `sddm` in that command; as it'll result in the same thing - ie. you're asked to pick one of the choices again.

    Note: that's what I'd do on a Ubuntu system (such as my own Lubuntu; I can't imagine it differs with Linux Mint; I've not used it in years)

    A bit off-topic, just want to ask/clarify. It technically should work on any .deb-based distribution, right?
