XDMCP desktop over LAN

Install XDM, LightDM and a greeter

$ sudo pacman -S xorg-xdm lightdm lightdm-gtk-greeter

/etc/X11/xdm/Xaccess => remove # at beginning of line

#*                  #any host can get a login window    

/etc/X11/xdm/Xservers => insert # at beginning of line

:0 local /usr/bin/X :0

$ su -l root

Activate and start LightDM

$ sudo systemctl enable lightdm
$ sudo systemctl start lightdm

Install Xming on Windows.

I recommend the donation approach. These versions are much-much than community version.
