Does Xfce have a Display Manager? What are the ones in Xubuntu and Zenwalk?


Hi there. I've tried Xubuntu and Zenwalk, both of which used Xfce as a default desktop. They both had a log in manager but i don't think they neither GDM nor KDM. Then what did they use?

Thank you

XUbuntu also uses GDM by default.

All you needed to do was google "Zenwalk display manager" and "Xubuntu display manager" and you wouldn't even need to click any links.

O, i see

That was so silly of me, hehe. I only tried those two distros for a few hours and to my memory, their DM didnt look like the GDM i installed, lol.

Anyway, thank you very much and sorry for annoying you with such a silly question

If you have learned it is OK.

Note: GDM, like anything linux, looks pretty much however you want it to. But I know what you mean... When I first saw Zenwalk, I thought "This is Xfce?!"
