{{tip|if you are only using one desktop environment, then why not choose the appropriate display manager to go with it?}}
'''Display Managers''' are used to provide login screens, and therefore serve as protective security barriers to prevent unauthorised access to your system.
'''Display Managers''' are used to provide login screens, and therefore serve as protective security barriers to prevent unauthorised access to your system. They are also referred to as ''Login Managers''. As with different desktop environments, different display managers will require different system resources to run, and will provide their own unique styles, interfaces, and features. Commonly shared features - particularly in respect to the selection of display managers listed below - include customisation/theming, automatic login, and the selection of multiple desktop environments. {{note|If using Plymouth, please be sure to read activate the section on Plymouth before following the below instructionsspecific service for your displaymanager}}

With LightDM, you also will need to install and configure a greeter. If you don't install a greeter, it won't work. There are a lot of greeters for LightDM. We will cover two of the greeters most commonly used by Manjaro editions.

==Lightdm Greeters==
===Slick Greeter===
 
Install the greeter and the configuration tool:
{{UserCmd|command=pamac install lightdm-slick-greeter lightdm-settings}}
The slick-greeter ships with a working configuration file but you can optionally run the "Login Window"(lightdm-settings) application and customize the greeter in many ways.
 
===GTK Greeter===
 
Install the greeter and the configuration tool:
{{UserCmd|command=pamac install lightdm-gtk-greeter lightdm-gtk-greeter-settings}}
The gtk greeter ships with a working configuration file but you can optionally run the "LightDM GTK+ Greeter Settings"(lightdm-gtk-greeter-settings) application and customize the greeter in many ways.
