I am trying to make WDM work on my Debian (potato) box. After having

the correct passwords. WDM "shakes it's head" as if the passwords are
wrong. They aren't. It doesn't matter which account I am trying to log
into. Same result.

you might want to check that /etc/pam.d/wdm exists and is in proper order, i have found a couple packages forgetting to include a pam file which will often lead to authentication with them failling. (not always unless you change pam.d/other to deny access (which the developers should do so they notice when they have a pam bug...))

I am using wdm and it works fine.  (except for not loading the environment)
