Session switching while using i3wm

Postby jeenuv » Fri Feb 17, 2017 2:10 pm

I'm experimenting with i3. My biggest gripe now is that I can't "switch user" from my i3 session to another one, or to let another user use my machine without them accessing mine. I've been told that lightdm has dm-tool which can achieve this from within i3, but I can't find anything with mdm.

I tried installing lightdm, but that wouldn't show the boot screen, and had to revert back to mdm.

Any thoughts?
