    Well I made it all the way to systemctl start and enable. Where do I use this command, in the /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf file or do I save after changing greeter-session=lightdm-deepin-greeter? Not sure. I saved the file greeter-session and tried to run the command to enable all I got was a blank black screen,

      Just open the file /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf in any editor of your choice and uncomment the line “greeter-session=lightdm-deepin-greeter”. Save and close the file. Then, Start and enable deepin service. It should work.

    When I try to install deepin I got a problem, already exists a file named lightdm and can not create a folder with same name.
    Can I remove this file?

    I am using Antergos distro

      Same here. I simply did: sudo rm /etc/lightdm

      So pacman can install its files. But next is the

      systemctl start lightdm.service
      which only gives black screen and blinking cursor.

      Manjaro deepin sadly does not want to be installed on my machine. It fails to write the bootloader. Some crappy python script…

  4. Das Jott says:

    This manual seemed to be good, but fails on

    systemctl start lightdm.service

    where it results in a black screen with a blinking cursor up left.
    I really love Deepin but it does not want to be on my machine…
