Originally posted by Feldon I am running Debian 220.127.116.11. I login via GDM and use KDE as my desktop environment. I was removing all the useless services/daemons and I wondered which of gdm, kdm or xdm I need??
My guess is just gdm??? Thanks for your input.
That is correct, if that's the one you use to log-in to KDE! You can safely remove the others!
Well on a standalone machine if you desire a display manager then that's totally up to you. But don't forget you can do without any of them and just start your X session from a console.
I do however like gdm better as it tends to look better than kdm. But then again If I'm using anything besides kde I prefer gdm. If I'm using kde then I prefer kdm. Kind of like a fasion statement............everything has to match or your clashing lol.
