Every time I log out of my session, gdm moves to a different DISPLAY variable. Judging from /var/log/gdm, it rotates between :0 and :5.

I'm finding no documentation on this logic. How do I keep gdm on :0?

This behavior is different on gdm-3.16. Now a gdm instance always active on vt1. – lkraav Oct 2 at 12:12
