When I launch multi-user session (xfce) with lxdm the command 'loginctl' return only the first user logged but not the others ones. Example with user1 and user2 connected :

[code][user2@Vulpus ~]$ loginctl
1 1000 user1 seat0

1 sessions listed.
[user2@Vulpus ~]$[/code]

lxdm 0.4.1-23
xfce4-session 4.10.1-2

Steps to reproduce:
Install xfce4
Install lxdm
Run 2 users session from lxdm
see the result of the command 'loginctl'

You are right. Unfortunately, lxdm doesn't handle the sessions correctly, and it's not easy to fix that. I suggest you to report this problem to upstream:

Thanks for the upstream report, dgod implemented out of process PAM support in LXDM, which fixes the problem. I applied these changes in lxdm 0.4.1-26.

Hello, OK it seams working better now for the loginctl command. But the problem is if you have 2 users connected when you you come back to the greeter screen (lxdm -c USER_SWITCH) if you try to connect to the first user it always come-back to the last session opened.
