I'm still having problems getting two X-sessions (with different users) running - xdpyinfo is complaining about a MIT magic cookie or something - I believe this is because it is not allowed to open the display of another user - worked around this by changing the if test at line 74 to

if `ls /tmp/.X11-unix/ | grep -q ${display}`; then

if Xorg decides to change where and how they define lock files this will break however so there's probably a better solution around.

xdpyinfo works fine for me with multiple users. But I still haven't tried cdm though

Re: The Console Display Manager

Can anyone else confirm this error? I haven't seen it before. Even better, can anyone get us the actual error message?

when trying xdpyinfo -display :0.0 from user2 I get:

Invalid MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE-1 keyxdpyinfo:  unable to open display ":0.0".

when trying xdpyinfo -display :1.0 from user1 I get:

No protocol specified
xdpyinfo:  unable to open display ":1.0"

google'd the MIT-COOKIE line - seems it is related to access control to the x-server - that is way above my head.

Re: The Console Display Manager

I know you have some debugging to do and you're more interested in reading about what other linux gurus have to say and all...

Nonetheless, could you please explain to me how in the world I can get a tarball of v0.3.2? You see, I'm still very much a noob and I would love to get rid of those bloated DMs.

That said, since I'm more of a Debian fan, is there any way I can simply download the source file? I went over to that git stuff but unfortunately it blew me off... didn't understand a thing (several files, displaying the code and whatnot) sad Needless to say I'm not that familiarized with the AUR thingy you all talk about either...

So far, my level of expertise (or lack thereof) is limited to: "untaring" and compiling... I sincerely apologize... I'm I the only noob in here? [echo...] Cue haters tongue

Keep up the most excellent work dude! Tks.

Re: The Console Display Manager

if you have yaourt installed, just do

yaourt -S cdm-git

if not,

wget aur.archlinux.org/packages/cdm-git/cdm-git.tar.gz
tar -xvf cdm-git.tar.gz && cd cdm-git
makepkg
pacman -U *.pkg.tar.gz

And read the wiki!

Re: The Console Display Manager

I tried this little app and I have problems in X after logging in. I use zsh and usually log in at tty and execute startx. Then my .zshrc is being recognized, which means, gmrun knows the executables in my custom PATH. When I start X with cdm, gmrun doesn't know them. Seems like the .zshrc isn't being read. Also, my volume keys don't work.

Is this because I don't use bash? I thought I read, that you now use $SHELL

Feel free to tell me more things I can test, because I'd love to help, although I don't think I'll use cdm in the future.

Awesome!

Just what I was looking for... Great work!

Looking forward to seeing new themes, to which I hope to contribute, as soon as I get inspired.

Re: The Console Display Manager

CDM now has it's own website! Granted the site is far from complete (or ordinary), but this means that my server is finally back up and running! And having my server back up and running means I'm finally ready to start focusing on developing CDM again!!! So keep the bug reports/ideas/suggestions/etc coming!!!

Re: The Console Display Manager

i tried googling that CLI of yours on the site, but i just couldn't find it? any hints to what it might be? i managed to find a bunch of sites that are using it but none are actually showing it's real name
EDIT: meh i think i found it, it's wordpress-cli isn't it? i think i overestimated it's quality, it really looks estheticly pleasing, much more than anyterm for example, but i'm not sure on it's functionality as a terminal, rather than a blog/site view

Re: The Console Display Manager

The CDM bugtracker is online! Please report bugs here.

HINT: You can also access the bugtracker by typing 'bugs' from the main CDM site. tongue

Re: The Console Display Manager

It may look good,but in my opinion,if it's just a "console" DM which means no graphic things,why couldn't we just type "startx" or"xinit" to step into our desktop?

Re: The Console Display Manager

The "problem" with CDM as opposed to other display managers is that it operates AFTER the user has logged in.

From the name, one would expect CDM to be more of a console-based GDM/KDM.

That would be much harder to accomplish. I believe it would have to be a getty replacement. Someone correct me if I'm wrong...

That's what I was thinking. Qingy works like that.

Hmm... I appear to be having server issues... Maybe you should use the -git version?
