[SOLVED] Tmux session killed on logout

Searching the forum I've found many entries on this topic but in every one of them they say it should not be a problem.

To reproduce:
- Login to LXDE
- Start a tmux session on a terminal emulator
- Detach
- I'm able to check that tmux is still running (with "tmux ls")
- Log out of the Desktop
- From a text terminal I don't see tmux running anymore

What could be killing the process? Systemd? Should there be any logs?

I'm using Archlinux updated to the latest. The Desktop is LXDE with LXDM display manager.

If the session is being killed, LXDM would be the obvious culprit.

Thanks for the prompt response.
I've been customizing everything more than a bit but I don't understand how could lxdm be killing everything including tmux. The postlogout script is empty and I don't see anything strange in lxdm's configuration

Remove it from the equation and see what happens.

Re: [SOLVED] Tmux session killed on logout

Very good suggestion.
Indeed after replacing LXDM with LightDM it stopped killing tmux server.

Still don't understand why would LXDM do that, I'll post it on LXDE forums
Thank you
