- Subject: Question about changed logout behavior.
Hi there, since starting using testing a month or so ago my xsession behavior (I pressume) seem to have changed. I get logged out automatically after exiting 'X'. I actually read that one person experienced the same thing about a week ago. Debian user, used testing and within the same time-frame as me. I can't remember where but first-hand guesses: reddit, stackoverflow or something like it. I've looked for it again, but can't find it. Sorry. I'm not really sure where to go next and I'm I suspect that it's an intentional change in some package. I guess next in line would be that I need to configure something and lastly a bug. I still have no idea what package is involved however. I've scraped the bottom of the barrel regarding search engines, conf-files, etc. I've guessed and read any leads I could find. Initial culprits I suspected: xsession, bash as login shell, systemd-logind and my login scripts. I stopped when I reached threads and the like over a decade old. My scripts are basic and I don't do anything fancy. See bottom for an edited outline of my '.xinitrc' file. My dot-files sets system editor and a few basic standard things. 'shopt' rules. Right from the documentation. I use 'dwm', my routine is to start 'X', from the command-line after login with the supplied 'startx' script. I don't use any scripts to start 'X' automatically and the reason is that I tend to do a little manual housekeeping at logout. Sometimes before I start 'X'. Definitely if I'm troubleshooting. Sometimes I want to start 'X' briefly and logout again. So I want the previous behaviour. The 'unclutter'-part refers to this, not the repo one: https://github.com/Airblader/unclutter-xfixes. My scripts contain program options, output redirections and things that would clutter '.xinitrc'. If they don't execute they fork to the background or get killed off. Basic stuff. Nothing that deals with the 'xsession' itself that I can deduce by myself. ``` /* Display settings */ xrdb ~/.Xresources xset r rate 350 40 slstatus & ~/.fehbg & nm-applet & /* Needed to do automatic backups, also stopped working btw */ /usr/lib/deja-dup/deja-dup-monitor & numlockx & ~/uptime.sh ~/touchpad-conf & /* One thing I think might be related to session itself, starts redshift at night if conditions are met */ ~/redshift.sh /* 'unclutter' maaay be be dealing with the session in some way */ unclutter -b --timeout=6 --jitter=350 --ignore-scrolling xscreensaver -no-splash & ``` --- Med vänlig hälsning, Johan T-Katiska.
