Thanks Ed, that tells me I'm using gdm. I might be getting confused with
Ubuntu, but I thought there was a .conf file somewhere that held the
specification of the default display manager that could easily be edited
to swap between any of the available display managers that you happen to
The issue I have with the lag, is when I use the mouse to drag the mouse
pointer over the list of users, the highlighting process lags that badly
that highlighting of users in the list gets skipped, and if I use the
arrow keys to cycle backwards and forwards through the list of 5 users,
it takes approx. 10 to 15 seconds for before each user gets highlighted.
Also having selected the user to login with, in my case my userid, and
gotten the password prompt, I only use a short password being 5
characters long, I can type the entire password and press enter to
action it, before the display manager displays to mask representing the
first character of the password, having displayed the first mask
character, it waits for a little while then displays the second mask
character, waits for a little while and then displays the last 3 mask
characters all at once.
I don't know if this is part of this issue or not, but having entered my
password, the system then displays a "black screen" for a period of time
before displaying the screen with the KDE logo on it to indicate that
KDE is starting up, but whatever that "black screen" is, the production
of that screen is enough to send my monitor into power saving mode until
just before the KDE logo screen is eventually displayed.
I'm not using sddm because when I tried it, I didn't like its
presentation layer, and the same applies to kdm.
