This is definitely needed. Right now, I see this:

root@test-ubuntu:~# ls -1F /etc/lxdm/

The two .conf files are basically identical (default.conf has a couple extra directives). I don't even know which file I'm supposed to edit, let alone why there are two such files in the first place.

Since the gdm-2.20 package is history, I'm looking for a display manager that doesn't pull in half of GNOME (gdm) or KDE (kdm), doesn't look like a bad memory from 1991 (sorry xdm), and is being actively developed (hasta la vista, wdm and slim). My first impressions of lxdm are very favorable---I'm hoping the follow-through can be improved.
