    Yes. But why cling stubbornly to SDDM when the others, IMHO, are better in this case, and LightDM is actually less heavy, as its name implies?

    Because whoever set up the TW packaging thought it was best

    Anyway, I know these two options work with the standard TW install with Intel graphics, and I try not to stray to far from the standard install. It may be that switching display managers is the best option, but it’s not the only option.

    Indeed, you are right. Giving the OP additional choices is a good thing. After all, I still want to see users having more chances to use Linux the way they want to use it instead of being told they "have no choices, use it this way or don't use it."

    SDDM without Plymouth is fairly lightweight and reliable. It has also improved recently -- it now supports interactions with normal-legacy Unix/Linux stuff like “w”, “last” etc. I used to stick with KDM, but it no longer has any advantages for me (with regard to remote support) compared to the stock SDDM.
