installing lightdm

view story

http://crunchbang.org – While I have no quarrel with the choice of slim as the default for low resource use, I want a display manager that gives me a shutdown option. Yes, I know it can be set up up with a halt account, but I like a GUI method. Also on this thin client I have a remote session on vt8 and want to shutdown the machine without having to set up halt or login first.Installing lightdm in parallel is as easy as:apt-get install lightdmand then choosing lightdm when the package reconfigure script asks which DM you want. To switch back to slim at the next start up, do:dpkg-reconfigure slimand it's obvious (HowTos)
