Greetings! Is there anyway to disable the GNOME login screen, and just login in with the command line? I think I remember logging into Solus without the GNOME login screen in previous versions (I could be mistaken though). Then after the user and password were approved the ... the GNOME desktop for the user. Is this still possible? And how would I got about doing so? Thanks for your time :)

Hi, I'm trying to put dnsmasq working along with NetworkManager by adding this: dns=dnsmasq to the [main] section of etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf just like I did several time for Arch in the past. However when I restart the NetworkManager service seems that this is ignored. what am I missing ? Thanks
