mdm: relogin is not possible
« 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.
Why doing it yourself when manjaro-system can do it for you?

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
