How to log in to system with LXDM display manager?
 
I have recently completed an install of Parabola. But whenever I open my laptop and I want to enter LXDE, I have to fist log in through the command line, then execute LXDM as a super user to log in again. Logging in twice is really an unnecessary inconvenience.

How can I set up my system so that LXDM is the first and only login that I have to perform?

You can start it as a service file in systemd:

sudo systemctl enable lxdm.service

Then reboot.

That's actually one of the reasons I'm asking this question. That doesn't work. Whenever I enable it in systemd and try to boot into my system, all I get is a blank screen. I then have to chroot into it through a usb to fix it.
