SLIM session issue when log-out and log-in

Hi folks,

is there a reason why if you log-out and log-in with SLIM you can not restart or shutdown the computer through the XFCE4 menu or panel action button?

This is not a big a deal but it is annoying...

Thanks,

Danielsan

Re: SLIM session issue when log-out and log-in

Is the login session maintained after logging out & back in again?

loginctl user-status

SLiM is dead upstream and it doesn't support logind sessions correctly so perhaps try LightDM or GDM instead. GDM will run X under the normal user so that should probably be preferred.

EDIT: this behaviour is a known problem with SLiM — it doesn't support a 'default' session where multiple sessions have been enabled. Change to a different display manager if you want to avoid this issue.

The best display manager is no display manager at all: http://forums.debian.net/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=29333

I see... Thanks for the explanation... Indeed Slim is pretty dead but, don't know why, I just thought that someone at Devuan could just taking care of it...

I am fine with SLIM, as login manager it does a lot of thing that otherwise I should setting up by myself, I'll reboot and shutdown from the terminal if I need to do so.
