    Dear Jackerwocky,

    Thank you for your post.

    Yes, LightDM is the recommended option to start TeamViewer before GUI login prompt.

    Other DMs doesn't allow to run TeamViewer before login prompt, what they do is start TeamViewer once the user logs on.

    We may suggest tune-up lightDM settings at keep as simple as possible heavy usage of resources.

    Hope that solution works for you.

    Best Regards,
