Lubuntu 20.04: Change Default SDDM Session

August 14, 2020

Edit /etc/sddm.conf

sudo nano /etc/sddm.conf 

Default session is Lubuntu

[Autologin]
Session=Lubuntu
User=admin

I recently installed Mate on Lubuntu, so I can make Mate the default desktop

[Autologin]
Session=Mate
User=admin

NOTE: You can list available desktop sessions via ls /usr/share/xsessions
