Can't stop MATE desktop service

Good day everyone,

I need to install specific screen resolution 1600x900, to do that I follow this tutorial https://community.linuxmint.com/tutorial/view/877
However there's a problem: when I try to execute sudo service mdm stop it says 'Failed to stop mdm.service: Unit mdm.service not loaded'.

How to deal with that? Maybe MATE desktop service is now called some other way?
--------
OS: Mint 18.3 Sylvia.

"mdm" has probably changed to "lightdm".

In any case you can do

Code: Select all

ps aux | grep dm 
and see which is running.
