XFCE4 config on devuan - differences to debian

Hello!

I am looking to understand, where to configure XFCE4 to behave the same as on my debian (bullseye).
At least two things matter:
- dialogs are not resizable
- cannot switch user (logging in parallel with a second user).
Can someone probably shed some light onto this?

Thanks,
Manfred

Re: XFCE4 config on devuan - differences to debian

webman, I'm not aware of what version of Devuan you use.....
but, by default the selection of xfce4 desktop environment installs slim as display-manager.
Just install lightdm instead --- and you will be able to switch users.
(Use sysnaptic or apt install lightdm to install and answer the questions sensibly)
Good luck

LightDM installs are broken most of the time for me and do not auto select greeter (lightdm-gtk-greeter)

Make sure lightdm install grabs that package
