Default Login Manager


I would like to change my default login manager using Debian Sid from xdm to gdm. When I tried using update-rc.d gdm defaults, I get error message:

update-rc.d: /etc/init.d/gdm: file does not exist

But gdm exits in /etc/gdm, how can I get it to be the default login manager?

Thnx.

Is gdm installed completely? The script should be in /etc/init.d/gdm, only the configuration files are stored in /etc/gdm.
Try apt-get install gdm to see if you're missing something.

I had already ran apt-get install gdm and it worked. Thanks for the reply.
