[SOLVED]Display Manager crashes every second log out

Hi,
I got this problem for about 15-20 days and I did not wanted to post it to forum because I thought it's a bug in some package and it will be fixed by updates, but no, even everything is up to date now I still face this problem..

I use LXDM, but same problem persists on SLiM, so I guess nothing is actually wrong with the DM I use.
Also, when I log out for first time, it do not crash, but after relogin I realise some of _services_ stop, such as sound, and NetworkManager do not appear in Notification Area. (however, I can use Internet)
I also tried (secure) removing my whole ~/.config dir, but not solved.

When it crashes after the second log out, tty1 appears.

Thanks smile

Re: [SOLVED]Display Manager crashes every second log out

Thank you :$
I've found a workaround on the post you wrote:
https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=159958
which is adding

#!/bin/sh
#

# Kills all your processes when you log out.
killall --user $USER -TERM

# Sets the desktop background to solid grey.
xsetroot -solid "#323232"

# Kills PulseAudio
pax11publish -r

# Workaround to lxdm not deleting session since systemd 198-1
loginctl terminate-user user1 user2
systemctl restart lxdm

to

 /etc/lxdm/PostLogout 

Thanks again!

Re: [SOLVED]Display Manager crashes every second log out

I had the same problem with SLiM; not exactly sure what the cause is, but a quick fix is to add a Restart=always to the slim.service.

1) sudo copy /usr/lib/systemd/system/slim.service /etc/systemd/system
2) sudo vim  /etc/systemd/system and add the Restart=always to the [Service] section
3) sudo systemctl reenable slim.service
