thanks to the suggestions above I've sddm installed but I still have some problems.
To solve it I need some clarification.

I installed sddm and uninstalled kdm and, querying equo:

I now have the old login in tty7 and the new sddm login in tty1.
Yes, using Ctrl+Alt+F1 I can login using the one I know as sddm. Using Ctrl+Alt+F7 I've the one i know as kdm.

And here I go in confusion: kdm is uninstalled, what I see in tty7?

The other question is that using TTY7 (KDM), I can see Plasma session but I can't use it (screen go black and returns on login). Using TTY1 (SDDM) I can't find Plasma in sessions combo.

Thanks you all for your time.

Edit:
PS: this installation was done at beginning of 2013 and I use it every day! Never a problem since then (it's my unique OS and use SL for job too), SL is awesome.

it is my mistake, forgive me for previous post, it was gdm in tty7...
I fixed using:

Code: Select all

systemctl stop gdm
systemctl disable gdm
Now TTY7 is empty and sddm works in TTY1.

I need only to solve Plasma item missing in session list.

thanks

Edit:
solved with reboot

if you, like me, have gnome you can have active gdm (or some other login manager).
Did you have only KDE or some other as gnome, xfce or lxde?

try:

Code: Select all

equo search gdm
