What display manager does Mint LXDE use?

Postby Jeff91 on Thu May 27, 2010 4:25 pm

I need to kill my display manager under Mint LXDE so I can install an application - I know it uses fluxbox for a Window manager but what display manager does it use/how can I stop it? I know it doesn't use GDM/KDM

Regards,
~Jeff

same... it also uses Slim.

Although... the Mint 9 versions od LXDE and Fluxbox will use LXDM and not Slim.
