Check back in the archives.  (I only keep 14 days of emails)

This was covered and Switch User has been disabled due to its many
A way to enable was given but discouraged.

Related question: is it possible to have two different DEs on
virtual consoles (if necessary with two distinct users)? For
one with KDE and another with Gnome. I know this used to be
possible in
some previous iterations of KDE/Plasma, but there may be
due to SDDM.
I've no idea.  But just minor thinking about it makes me wonder if
there wouldn't be conflicts
in ownership of system hardware?  Which DE/session owns the audio?
Network interfaces?
I was under the impression that Gnome dealt with this, though I don't
know the details. Why would running multiple DEs be any different from
running multiple users? I can see how audio might be an issue, but
network interfaces are designed to be shared.

I don't know about GNOME dealing with it.  But if they have that doesn't change the fact
that KDE/sddm hasn't done so successfully.

So, if this is a need why don't you switch to using gdm and then look into the same question
from that angle.

I don't have a use case from switching users as our cats hardly demand computer time.
And, if I want to run GNOME for some reason (or another DE) I'm content to do so in a VM.

While network interfaces are designed to be shared it doesn't mean harmony exists between
users.  Or  that the secondary user is the same person.  Secondary user comes home and
without thinking fires up a VPN connection unaware they are disrupting a long file transfer.

Remind me to ignore comments which aren't germane to the thread.
