LightDM as the default Display Manager

Feature state

openSUSE Distribution


Using LightDM as the default Display Manager for Gnome, KDE and XFCE we will be reducing possible Display Manager issues to just 1 source.
Ubuntu is already using it and others distro will probably follow this idea.

KDE/Qt LightDM is already in progree: http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=OTUxNg

There's something wrong with this request. Firstly the lightdm is a project in developpement (even just an idea for a lot of part) so replacing long tested and well supported DM by a new piece of software that seems just to be a draft actually look incredible for me.
If you want to replace something that work in so much type of deployement : make a full list of real advantages for this software compared to the others.
Like including whole PAM auth stack, remote access, etc

Then find someone to make it available on OBS, so it will get a chance to be firstly build, and tested.
(Don't imagine it's easy, look at the plymouth feature which is one of the most requested)

I also agree in the simplicity and uniformity that could be useful for OpenSUSE to align their multi-desktops environment distribution to a single display manager.

Lightdm is in the repos now and maturing!
