On 17.10 I think Wayland may have been the default but this was
changed for 18.10.  As I said you can switch from the login screen.
Click the Icon near the login name. I haven't got a 17.10 system any
more so can't remember exactly what it looks like.  If it is not
obvious which to choose then ask again.
