Console TDM - A CDM-like login manager

Inspired by CDM, I wrote a login manager called TDM. TDM is also written in pure bash, and it has a config tool tdmctl, whose usage is similar to systemctl.
TDM has the following features:
  Use links or scripts to set up the X sessions
  Use tdminit file to configure TDM
  Use tdmexit file to autostart some X programs
  Can set the default session
  Can be used with xdm (yet it sucks ^_^)
  Dialog and text user interface

If you're intrested, you can have a try. Console TDM is on AUR and wiki.
Have fun!

Re: Console TDM - A CDM-like login manager

I feel like an idiot for asking, but would it be possible to see a screenshot of the login screen?

Re: Console TDM - A CDM-like login manager

Very very nice!
Far better than xdm I used before!

I put in my .bash_profile:

# ~/.bash_profile
#

[[ -f ~/.bashrc ]] && . ~/.bashrc

tdm --disable-xrunning-check

In my .xinitrc the command you gave advice

This line in the .config/tdm/tdminit:

# Pour avoir le logo archlinux et tout
archey3

And I moved this line from .xinitrc to .config/tdm/tdmexit:

# Example commands to execute before your WM/DE
#export LANG=zh_CN.UTF-8
#fcitx
#feh --bg-scale /path/to/wallpaper


#boucle pour afficher la charge de la batterie, la température du processeur, la mémoire vive utilisée
#et l'heure

while true; do
        xsetroot -name "$BAT $LOAD $FREE $LOCALTIME"
        LOCALTIME=$(date +"%R")
        BAT="B$(cat /sys/class/power_supply/BAT0/capacity)"
        FREE="$(($(free --mega | head -c 115 | tail -c 4))) M"
        LOAD="$(($(echo $[100-$(vmstat 1 2|tail -1|awk '{print $15}')])))"
        sleep 15s
done &

I made

tdmctl add terminal_agetty /usr/bin/clear extra

To have ability to have tty session.

The result is I can have multiple graphical sessions, tty sessions, and a lot of choices.

I must just search how to add entries in the menu which can do these kind of combined commands:

pcmanfm --desktop && exec jwm

I'm against internet totalitarians of any kind.
And like cheese's humor.
