[EN] siduction desktop manager
« on: 2023/07/10, 19:40:34 »
After a recent DU I lost the desktop manager and I had to use startxfce4 to login in the desktop.
The plank application didn't work.
I installed the lightdm but I have 2 problems:

  • I don't like it
  • when I get into the desktop it displays the lightdm ugly wallpaper and after 1 min it display the well known siduction wallpaper
Any idea what I have to do (which package to install) to get back the siduction desktop manager

Thank you

Thank you hendrikL
I installed the suggested packages but I got a white screen and I was unable to login.
Is a another package that I have to install?

Do you install with recommends, some qt packages are missing, apt install --install-recommends ......

Maybe check dmesg and journalctl for error, or xorg.log

what I think you run in the qt-base transition because sddm is qt, check the apt log files in /var/log/apt/ perhaps you can find there which essential package has been changed or was removed!
