Hi Yves-Alexis Perez,

Very sorry but you are wrong, there are more users that need that.
Not much but still.
Personally I wanted to configure multi-session support in Xorg (not
As I see, there is no way to do that on Debian 9.

What about to "nobody complained" - well, I'm complaining now, and just
because I've got new hardware and tried to setup fresh system. I had no
need to complain earlier because my old system (Debian 7) still works fine
and does what I needed. Now I see no other option to get what I want on new
hardware except to setup Debian 7.

I will be glad if I understood something wrong, and Xorg multi-session is
possible on current Debian 9 (any DM will be fine for me).
If so, please reply here or into my message in users mailing list:

Hope this will be solved.
Thank you!
