[opensuse-factory] 12.3 RC2: Broken display manager when xfce desktop is selected on install.
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA256

Hi,

When you choose XFCE as the default desktop type, the displaymanager
is set to "lightdm". I have found two problems with this, so far:

Bug 807091 - XFCE ignores .i18n file
Bug 807097 - On default XFCE install, display manager fails to halt or
reboot machine

The second one is the worst for most people, I guess: the machine can
not be halted nor rebooted. There has been no answer at all on this
report so far.

I have tried 'xdm' as display manager: this solves the first issue,
but then there are no buttons to halt, reboot, or choose session type.
This display manager does not have enough features. Bug 805847 says
that "lxdm" has the same problem of not being able to halt or reboot.

Besides KDM or GDM, are other display managers that I could try?

(I'm going to try wdm next)
