    Default LXDE switch user/start new session.

    OK, short question. Is it possible to enable start new session/switch user in 11.4 LXDE?

    It works with my Debian based LXDE but then I'm using GDM with that. I'm thinking going the same route might be the answer...

    Yes. Use gdm or kdm and you can use that. lxdm does not support that (yet?)

    Well, I installed GDM and removed LXDM. The only other thing I had to do was edit /etc/sysconfig/displaymanager to point to gdm instead of lxdm. I've now got the ability to switch users! Thanks!
