[Solved] Slim: Failed to Execute Login command

Hello Guys,

I am just wondering what I might fcked this time...;)

First of all I tried different wm's today - and when I tried to login n'th time - I got this strange slim error which I put in topic title. I can log in to the computer, but cannot log into X serv with slim.

http://wklej.to/JXTy - This is my last few lines of slim.log.

If anyone would be bored enough to look at it, I will be gratefull.

Best regards,
mike.

Re: [Solved] Slim: Failed to Execute Login command

I can't answer all of the errors but if you have disabled input hotplugging in xorg the errors about "(EE) config/hal: NewInputDeviceRequest failed" can be ignored or else you need to setup hotplugging properly.  Toward the end of your log it looks like you're trying to launch awesome but it can't be found for some reason.  Maybe post your .xinitrc.  I've seen that slim "Failed to Execute" before when my .xinitrc was pointing to something I didn't have installed anymore.

Yey, I solved it:)

First of all - bgc1954 - thank You for the reply and interest in helping me.

Tbh, I don't know which of the things helped me - I have a habit of applying many fixes and then looking at the results. With this I have done the following:

- In my home folder I created backup copies of files: .xinintrc & .Xauthority
- I deleted .Xauthority from home folder
- reinstaled slim
- rechecked .xinitrc and other init files for errors - I didn't found any
- deleted slim lock file from /var/lock/

As I mentioned - I don't know which one helped - but I didn't had time to play with it. Now it works.

Best regards,
~praavDa.

Just as a heads up, slim was giving me the same error and removing the slim lock solved the problem.

Re: [Solved] Slim: Failed to Execute Login command

Same error, because of upgrading the xcb-util (0.3.4-1) for awesome3.

Solved by :
a) rm /var/lock/slim.lock
b) ln -s /usr/lib/libxcb-keysyms.so.1.0.0 /usr/lib/libxcb-keysyms.so.0

Just read /var/log/slim.log and found the solution.
