An idea for an app


Post by duane » Mon Nov 09, 2015 2:56 pm

I just had an idea. Not sure how hard it would be to create it.

Lots of people like to install KDE as an alternative window manager in MX as well as AntiX.

I think it would good to have an app for those people that would let you choose which login manager you want to use at next boot.
It seems to me people really need to run more than one and a way to switch back and forth between them easily.

Would such an app be feasible??

Users are free to install KDE, free to follow the Wiki entry to get it where they like it, and free from the login screen to choose either KDE or Xfce.

Sorry, but I see no reason why MX resources should be used on trying to create what you suggest.

You might want to check out desktop-session-antix. It works well in antiX, doesn't work in MX-15 at the moment but could probably be adapted.
