Description of problem:

I installed system-switch-displaymanager. If trying to start it after installation, I get an errormessage:

[~/Desktop]: system-switch-displaymanager
Display Manager Switcher GUI is unavailable.
Please install the switch-displaymanager-gnome package or use
system-switch-displaymanager [display manager].

Trying to install switch-displaymanager-gnome fails:

sudo dnf install switch-displaymanager-gnome

No package switch-displaymanager-gnome available.
Error: Unable to find a match.

I think, the errormsg of system-switch-displaymanager is wrong: trying to install system-switch-displaymanager-gnome succeeds and does all I need!!

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
