I have never used lightdm but I think it is reasonably popular. You
may wish to wait for more responses before making such a drastic

Have you tried switching into regular (or into Wayland) using
the little sessions sprocket in the GDM login screen?

As for lightdm, the Guix reference manual offers an example
configuration here. [1] You would probably also want to remove the
gdm-service-type from %desktop-services with something like this:



      (service lightdm-service-type))

    (modify-services %desktop-services
      (delete gdm-service-type))))

That was typed by hand and is untested, but you can see a more general
example here. [2]

Kind regards
