Bug Description

On artful, on a fresh installation, gdm sets the default session to ubuntu-wayland. It should be set to ubuntu-x11 until it's decided that wayland is the default display server.

This bug was fixed in the package gdm3 - 3.24.2-1ubuntu6

gdm3 (3.24.2-1ubuntu6) artful; urgency=medium

  * debian/patches/ubuntu_prefer_x11_session.patch:
    Prefer X11 session over wayland. As we are not ready yet for
    switching to wayland yet, let's prefer X11 session when no specific
    choice was made. (LP: #1703601)
    This will be reverted once we switch to wayland by default.

I'm not sure if it was this bug or just a discussion I saw on IRC, but until this morning at least both "Ubuntu" and "Ubuntu on Wayland" sessions resulted in a Wayland session (on a fresh install from a couple of days ago). "Ubuntu" was not creating a Xorg session.

I was about to log a new bug today until I noticed updates seem to have fixed it...(?)
