Re: The Console Display Manager

You could wait for it to become available again... shouldn't be long.... or you could use the git version (I recommend the git version anyway)

Re: The Console Display Manager

I really want to get this working! I'm sick of how slow slim is
I login, and cdm is shown. The shutdown and console options work perfectly, no problem, but whenever I try to start an openbox session, it immediately takes me back to the login screen
Any suggestions?

EDIT: Could it possibly be because I use fgetty rather than getty?

Re: The Console Display Manager

/etc/cdmrc: http://pastebin.org/585429
~/.xinitrc: http://pastebin.org/585456

EDIT: I changed my ~/.xinitrc to load $1 rather than straight openbox-session, and I put a 'set -x' before the startx in /usr/bin/cdm. Ran cdm, selected openbox, and got the command it used to startx.

nohup ck-launch-session bash --login -c 'startx /home/danny/.xinitrc openbox-session -- :0 -nolisten tcp -dpi 96 vt7'

The command works fine on it's own, so it must be something about the way cdm handles it that's creating my problem.

Re: The Console Display Manager

I just installed CDM two days ago, I found conky telling me 0 users had logged in. I didn't pay attention at first, I thought must be something wrong with conky, but just minutes ago, I ran

$ w
 10:35:46 up  6:31,  0 users,  load average: 0.20, 0.16, 0.16
USER     TTY        LOGIN@   IDLE   JCPU   PCPU WHAT
$ who
$

Is this normal? (When I used XDM to login fluxbox, those commands showed me something)

(I don't know if it's about my config, I attach it anyway:

$ cat /etc/cdmrc | egrep -v '#|^$'
theme=default
countfrom=1
wmbinlist=(startfluxbox)
wmdisplist=(Fluxbox)
allowconsole=yes
consolefirst=no
allowshutdown=yes
shutdowncommand='sudo shutdown -h now'
rebootcommand='sudo shutdown -r now'
allowsuspend=no
suspendcommand='sudo pm-suspend'
display=0
xtty=7
locktty=no
loginshell=no
consolekit=no
usexinit=yes
serverargs="-nolisten tcp -dpi 96"

Re: The Console Display Manager

Great work!
Simplest and fastest login

Ghost1227, haven't you considered a more qingy-like approach: launching X on current vt or maybe even somehow moving cdm startup from bash profile to inittab?

I've tried to launch X on current vt by setting xtty=$((`fgconsole` - 1)), but it resulted in broken policykit (no shutdown, cpu scalling privileges inside session) and something is spamming lots of eights into agetty login prompt after end of session or vt switch, like "88888888888888=888888888888;888888888888888888..."

I'm also joining question in previous post. My session is also invisible to `who`, regardless of whether login shell option is set or not.


Also: my minimalistic two-color theme:

 screen_color = (BLUE,BLACK,ON)
shadow_color = (BLACK,BLACK,ON)
dialog_color = (BLACK,BLACK,OFF)
title_color = (BLUE,WHITE,ON)
border_color = (BLACK,BLACK,OFF)
button_active_color = (WHITE,BLACK,ON)
button_inactive_color = (BLUE,BLACK,ON)
button_key_active_color = (WHITE,BLACK,ON)
button_key_inactive_color = (BLUE,BLACK,ON)
button_label_active_color = (WHITE,BLACK,ON)
button_label_inactive_color = (BLUE,BLACK,ON)
menubox_color = (BLUE,BLACK,ON)
menubox_border_color = (BLUE,BLACK,ON)
item_color = (BLUE,BLACK,ON)
item_selected_color = (WHITE,BLACK,ON)
tag_color = (BLUE,BLACK,ON)
tag_selected_color = (WHITE,BLACK,ON)

Re: The Console Display Manager

Thanks Ghost - this is great.

I have been experimenting with different colorschemes, does anyone know how to include other colours, eg., grey?
I have tried GREY and "\e]P83d3d3d" - to no effect.

Re: The Console Display Manager

Weird, cdm simply doesn't show up automatically if my default login shell (which you can set by using chsh) is set to fish..
If I login and execute cdm, everything works. If I set my default shell to bash, cdm starts automatically.

Any ideas/workarounds? Is this a {fish, bash, cdm}-bug?

Re: The Console Display Manager

Great piece of software - I just hacked it around a bit to start fbterm and tmux for me as well as X desktops. Here's the diff

147,154d146
<     # Check if tmux access is allowed
<     if $(checkyesno allowtmux); then
<         if ! $(checkyesno allowshutdown); then
<             let halt=99
<         fi
<         menu="0 TMUX ${menu} "
<     fi    
< 
194,196c186
<     if [[ ${wm} -eq 0 ]]; then
<         prettyconsole /home/tom/yellow.png
<     elif [[ ${wm} -eq ${console} ]]; then
---
>     if [[ ${wm} -eq ${console} ]]; then

And then all that's needed is a line which says

allowtmux=yes

Incidentally, the prettyconsole script that's called there is from KMandla's blog originally

#!/bin/bash
echo -ne "\e[?251"

fbv -ciuker $1 << EOF
q
EOF

shift
export FBTERM_BACKGROUND_IMAGE=1
exec fbterm tmux

Hope that's useful to someone smile

Re: The Console Display Manager

seems like your bug tracker is down, so here's a bug report.  after installing CDM (within a running X session), i switched to a tty, logged out, and logged back in.  now,  *nothing* happens.  so switched to another tty where i was already logged in and ran htop.  the tree view shows me that cdm has invoked 'xdpyinfo -display :0.0'... and is simply sitting there.  when i kill xdpyinfo, cdm proceeds to present me with the session menu, and everything works from there as expected.  this is a very repeatable process.

*so*, for fun, i switched to a tty and rand 'xdpyinfo -display :0.0'... and *nothing*.  it doesn't exit with an error status, it simply sits there.  this is not what i'd expect from xdpyinfo; i'd assumed it would simply throw an error because X wasn't running and exit.  from cdm, it seems like you did, too:

# If X is already running and locktty=yes, activate it,
# otherwise, increment.
if $(checkyesno locktty); then
        # Verify display exists
        if [[ -n "${display//[0-9]/}" ]]; then
                display=0
        fi
        # Activate existing X session
        if xdpyinfo -display :${display}.0 &> /dev/null; then
                let tty=display+xtty
                chvt ${tty}
                exit 0
        fi
else
        # Get the first empty display
        display=0
        while [[ ${display} -lt 7 ]]; do
                if dpyinfo=$(xdpyinfo -display :${display}.0 2>&1 1>/dev/null); 
then
                        let display=display+1
                else
                        break
                fi
        done
fi

what i don't see in there is an check to see if X is indeed running.  it looks to me like your relying on xdpyinfo to throw an error if it doesn't find the display you're asking about, but (at least here) it just sits, doing not much of anything.

is this my problem or yours?  if it's yours what about throwing an "if [[ -z $DISPLAY ]]; elif ... ; fi" around the whole block?

if it's my problem, what the heck is going on?

Re: The Console Display Manager

I think the -dpi 96 in serverargs is unnecessary. The DE's are much better in figuring out the dpi, even my compiz standalone session does it well. Leaving the dpi in serverargs messed up my font sizes in 1440x900.

Re: The Console Display Manager

If anyone still has trouble launching two X sessions by different users for some reason because of the magic cookie error from xdpyinfo, you might want to add this snippet after line 130 (the get first empty display loop):

        elif [[ $dpyinfo = Invalid\ MIT* ]]; then
            # Display is in use by another user
            let display=display+1

Since the magic cookie error indicates that it's trying to access something that doesn't belong to the user, it might be a good idea to increment the tty based on that output.

Re: The Console Display Manager

Hello Ghost1227, thank for this wonderfully easy login manager, I really enjoy its kind of way doing things.

However, I have a small little issue: i’m using zsh, which entails a ~/.zlogin (which is only read when zsh is invoked with the »-l« parameter, i.e. as a login shell) and a ~/.zshrc, which is sourced by every instance of zsh.

However, the loginshell=yes option doesn’t seem to invoke zsh as a real login shell, since .zlogin (which only defines my path) is NOT read.

For the time being, I’ve included the path definition in .zshrc and as thus, it works again now, but this is not how it is thought to be, since the path definition only needs to be read one time and then get exported.

Are there any hints on how to solve this?

Best,

Jakob

Re: The Console Display Manager

Thanks a lot for CDM, it's really great!

Though I have issues with it not working properly with consolekit, I solved them all by using xinitrc instead of direct executing of the sessions smile

Right now I use CDM to choose between Gnome, Gnome-Fallback, Xfce, LXDE and Openbox sessions in my laptop big_smile

Thanks again!

Cheers from Argentina

I just realized that when using CDM, my .bash_profile does not get sourced. Any workaround for this (other than putting everything in .bashrc)?

xorg-utils should be added as a dependency since xdpyinfo is in that package.

Added in -git version. will add in stable shortly.

xorg-utils is a transitional package. if cdm depends on xdpyinfo add a dependency to xorg-xdpyinfo directly.

What are you actually trying to say? When you are not certain that you can or want to communicate something that is helpful or informative for other users, please refrain from posting altogether. When you need help, post output or logs of what you have done, what the desired result was and what actually happened. It is counterproductive when people have to guess what you are doing on your system.
