The desktop session managers are missing the Session control that allows you to switch desktop environments at user logon.
I’ve switched between GDM and SDDM and can’t switch DE’s.
Install base is Fedora 29 KDE spin.
I ran dnf groupinstall "Cinnamon Desktop" successfully.
Switchdesk and switchdesk gui do not list Cinnamon as an option either.
However, I ran dnf groupinstall "Fedora Workstation" and can use switchdesk to go to default gnome3.
Yet, the gear or drop-down control on the display managers do not exist like they do in documentation and screenshots.
I’d like to have that control show up on the display manager at login.
I’d also like to be able to switch DE’s to Cinnamon to try it out… without having to reinstall the OS.
I figured it out; here’s the info if anyone goes looking.
The SDDM display manager has its own preferences file.
It is under /etc/sddm.conf
The second line I changed from plasma.desktop to cinnamon.desktop
The third line contains my username whenever I select auto login under the system settings app.
I am now auto-logging into desktop, into the Cinnamon DE.
