[pkg-fso-maint] Bug#796203: Should provide a native .service file and integration with systemd

Package: nodm
Version: 0.11-1.3
Severity: important


nodm provides a special kind of display manager.
I therefor think, it should use the same mechanism as other display
managers like gdm3 or lightdm, to make sure that only ever one display
manager is started during boot.

For proper integration with systemd, nodm will have to provide a native
.service file and make sure, a symlink
/etc/systemd/system/display-manager.service is created in postinst which
points at the nodm service, if it is chosen as default.

Please have a look at other packages like lightdm or gdm3 on how to do
that. If further help is needed, please don't hesitate to ask.
