LXDM – New Display Manager

LXDE finally has its own display manager, lxdm, and doesn’t need to rely on GDM or KDM from now on.

To see is to believe.

Recently, a new developer dgod from China joined us and contributed a new project, lxdm, a lightweight display manager aimed to replace gdm. Later, I modified his code, and re-implement the UI with GTK+. So, this is how it look like. It’s still in very early stage, and things are not expected to work correctly. For now, it only work smoothly with Fedora. On Ubuntu or others, there might be some issues. However we’ll work on fixing those problems and finish this new display manager.

The code is in LXDE svn repo. For someone who wants to try it, use at you own risk and have fun!
