How to try other Display managers with KDE

I’ve been using EndeavourOS KDE for a while now. The default display manager is SDDM.

Is there a way to change the display manager to lightDM?


Yes, you just need to install and configure lightdm with a greeter.

Then you can switch with:

sudo systemctl enable lightdm.service --force

You should be aware though that the lock screen is part of plasma so if you do this your lock screen will look different from the login screen.

Naturally. I installed KDE alongside XFCE and stayed with the lightdm display manager. I didn’t realize that not using SDDM would be a disadvantage for me. You can easily switch between display managers in the Welcome application.
