    Re: GDM - XFCE/Cinnamon/Gnome switching user wont work

    Hey,
    sorry for my late responses, here are some things i found out after i did the post:

    - Cant switch users
    - Cant unlock screen when using desktop that isnt shipped with greeter (like cinnamon with gdm, or gnome with lightdm)

    So i got the idea that this whole thing is connected to the screensaver/locker. Sadly the screensaver isnt an standalone thing in gnome3 anymore, so i wasnt able to "redirect" it to the right one.

    i hope u understood me
    thank u for ur help
