Jep. A global setting for default DE should not affect security. Maybe as sub-option for “do not show user list” option.
And this is why I boot to “runlevel 3”, log in and type startx.
Corner cases are always worth reporting. Lots of times they point to some very important bugs, sorry “undocumented features”.
Fixed in our source tree. Now the last desktop which was used system-wide will be saved/reloaded the next time PCDM starts up (even if the user list is hidden).
Stable 17.12 Update
I’ll report back in December.
If only I could code - then I wouldn’t be restricted to bug complaints but could just commit solutions… sorry!
Ups. Forgot to report back here in december. Did it in some other thread, though, I think.
The promised feature was implemented in the december 17.12 stable udpate.
So, everything’s fine now.
Thanks a lot, developers!
