Re: MATE Desktop fails

thanks for helping me.

Can it be that MATE 1.24.1 desktop with gdm is already 3 years old,
and became slowly worse.

Since some month I have to enter my password at login twice,

now the additional monitor isn’t recognised any more,

even during starting it is recognised, but after the second login it is not recognised anymore.

Could it be that MATE 1.24.1 became always worse through updating gdm because now MATE 1.26 (already in Trisquel 11 used) und MATE 1.27 is available, and after updating to a new version the support for the older version is not so good any more?

16.04.2023      MATE 1.27
2021-08-10 09:00   MATE 1.26 released
2020-02-10 09:00   MATE 1.24 released

Kind regards

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
