Re: PYTHON_SUPPORTED_IMPLS

You can run X as normal user, without making changes to any part of xorg-server package, ie no startx, etc changes, BUT it does require a newer kernel OR a one line modification to one file (for older kernels where it checks permissions), not sure if that change got backported to older kernels. As f...

Re: Russian 'troop build-up' near Ukraine

Just a few idiots who think that somehow they can bring back the cold war era.

This ain't the 50's though.

Re: seatd in place of systemd or elogind

xfce4-session, coming from the session (xfce's end of it anyway), looks like a timing problem within xfce-session when shutting down. (other reports from the end of 2020),

I wouldn't worry about it, unless it happens every time.

Re: seatd in place of systemd or elogind

That's definitely a polkit message, but I think that's a normal shutting down the session message.

Re: seatd in place of systemd or elogind

well i tried -systemd and +-elogind for the seatd package but both failed. but i have the elogind package still installed. also experiencing segfault at the shutdown of xfce-session. If elogind is being used did you enable the polkit flag(policykit)? Cause that sounds like a permission problem. The...

Re: seatd in place of systemd or elogind

I just looked and they have a new version (~arch) and there are some changes.

Which version are you using 0.4.0 or 0.5.0?

Re: seatd in place of systemd or elogind

Interesting, how did you compile seatd (with elogind and/or systemd)? If so then I would imagine it would require dbus, whatever they need.
I don''t think that bare seatd needs or uses dbus.

Re: seatd in place of systemd or elogind

The include script comes from the files dir so whoever is maintaining the ebuild probably provided the "init file" I noticed that there wasn't much too it, when I looked at it and thought that it might needs a dependency or two spelled out. I'd holler at bugs gentoo and post your patch aga...

Re: What happened to Palemoon?

I set this

Code: Select all

$ grep DIR_MODE /etc/portage/make.conf 
PORTAGE_WORKDIR_MODE="0755"
So I can see the directory as a normal user.

Re: seatd in place of systemd or elogind

Default should work, as far as making it available soon enough.
I'm sure that xdm is smart enough to understand seatd though.

I mainly use it from the command line where it works well.
