Title: mdm: relogin is not possible
Post by: tun in a cellar on 08. March 2013, 07:45:58
Initial Case:
mdm and mdm-themes are installed.
lxdm was disabled (sudo systemctl disable lxdm)
mdm is enabled (sudo systemctl enable mdm)

Use Case:
At first login (after having (re)started my laptop) no issue is encountered.
From my DE (XFCE), I logout without any issue. MDM login screen is displayed again.

Issue:
Trying to login again always fails with authentication error message.

Workaround:
Clicking on the "Quit" button (if available in the mdm login screen) solves the issue: the mdm login screen seems to be repainted and login is correct.

Comment:
The workaround didn't work yesterday with the manjaro theme because the "quit" button wasn't available. It has been available since the update occured this morning.

I had some issues with relogin also on Virtualbox. Using the html-theme works. Sadly I missed something which broke it for some hours. Latest package should fix it again. I've to see why that is.

Known issue to fail in re-login is having getty running on tty1. Change it to tty9 as we have done it in 0.8.5-pre1:
Code: [Select]
sudo rm /etc/systemd/system/getty.target.wants/getty@tty1.service
sudo ln -sf /lib/systemd/system/getty@.service /etc/systemd/system/getty.target.wants/getty@tty9.service
Using the html theme gave us the best result:
Code: [Select]
sudo pacman -Sy mdm-themes
