GDM starts in off screen


Hi everybody, i need help with the next problem: when i start my funtoo system with Gnome 3 (i use openrc) everything works well except for GDM, it starts in off screen; is initially shown as expected only for a second and a second later it goes to off screen and i have to move the mouse or to hit any key to see anything again. So after moving the mouse GDM is back, but now is shown with the damn screenshield. After this i can remove the screen shield and login so i guess is not a big problem, but i'm tired of that situation every time i power on my computer. Thanks in advance!



Note:-----> this issue is presented as well when the session is closed, so it happens in every session change

I actually had the same problem, but could not solve it. Poking around in the gdm mailing list it seems that this is the intended behaviour since some newer version.

As a workaround I suggest switching to another display manager, e. g. lightdm or sddm.
