Description

Unlike KDM, GDM outsources services such as shutdown, restart and parts of session switching to a lower-level component. Until and including Fedora 16, that component was ConsoleKit. Starting from Fedora 17, it is systemd. Support for systemd in kde-workspace was developed in Fedora and needs testing.

Setup

You need to have the gdm package installed - yum install gdm.

How to test

  1. If your current display manager is KDM, switch to use GDM:
    1. Switch to a virtual terminal using Ctrl+Fkeys
    2. Login as root, and stop the GDM service: service gdm stop
    3. Start kdm: service kdm start. KDM login screen should now appear.
  2. If autologin to GNOME was enabled, start by logging out of GNOME.
  3. Log into KDE Plasma Desktop. (GDM allows selecting the session type after you enter the user name, on the password prompt screen.)
  4. Try shutting down, rebooting or switching users from the KDE Plasma Desktop Workspace.

Expected Results

  1. Shutdown and restart should work.
  2. User switching should also work.
