LXDM can work with or without ConsoleKit. Indeed the version in X11:lxde is built without ConsoleKit since April 2015.
The officially released version (4.1) is prehistoric.
Sure - I have to base my findings on the stuff I have in the distro - and lxdm has a bad taste in my mouth as this was updated in the past and reverted because it never worked on first boot... and the maintainer's proposed 'just reboot - it works on 2nd boot' is still not an acceptable situation for a distro...
So as we carry a pre-historic version anyway - I'd say dropping it is the right thing to do
which leaves us with - how do we do it.
May I shift the thread a bit? I thought replacement of LXDE by LXQt is quickly approaching. I tried the version from X11:LXQt on 42.1 and it was working well. It is good choice for old netbooks and so on. So my question is what is the current state of that replacement?
If it's going to be replaced does it make sense to promote LXDE as desktop selection in the install still? How well maintained is it anyways?
