How to change Display Manager via terminal?


Today I decided to experiment and changed the display manager from SDDM (default option on endeavouros Sway edition) to lightDM. I did that using the Endeavouros Welcome app (the one that starts up when you login, it is a new installation), there is a button called “Change Display Manager”.

I rebooted the system but I am not able to get past the login screen, it keeps prompting me for a password (it shows that after displaying “Starting Account Service”.

How do I change the display manager back to the default ?

Note: I can try logi in

If you haven’t uninstalled sddm, try:
sudo systemctl enable sddm.service --force


Thank you very much! That did restore the default option :ok_hand::smiling_face:
