But related question, I do wonder if there's any text mode only display
managers. yes I know you can startx aftr login, but I do like how
display managers give you the F1-F6 TTY, something I can't, AFAIK and
correct me if I'm wrong, get with startx?
I'm not sure if downgrading lightdm would solv ethe issue? If you're on
Arch grab the downgrade package from the AUR. It may be available in
other distros, I honestly dunno if it is or not, and I orget how oyu
downgrade packages in Debian/Ubuntu or Fedora and no clue on Slackware stuff

How can I configure lightdm to not put the screen in grap;hics mode and to again ask for username and password in text mode where brltty can handle them. Then start the GUI in tty7.
