• Can't get CDM (console display manager) to work


    Hello all, if this thread is still open, i’d like to ask if anyone has any idea how to get CDM to work… im running i3 on plasma, cant get CDM to work

    the error i get is -

    cdm-xlaunch: waiting for ConsoleKit to register X session.
    dbus-monitor: unable to enable new-style monitoring: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.AccessDenied: "Rejected send message, 1 matched rules; type="method_call",
    Falling back to eavesdropping.
    

    and the login prompt appears again.

    if i set ConsoleKit=no in cdmrc then i get no error, but the login prompt keeps looping after each login. I tried setting xtty=‘keep’ but that didnt work either.

    i could not find any solution on google, does anyone know a workaround?

    thanks for helping!

    Ok, i never used CDM or Consolekit…

    Brainstorm :)
    Was it working before and stopped? Did you change some file permission?
    Did you installed kdebase-workspace-consolekit?
    There is also an Archwiki about consolekit

    I’m not sure if someone else use those packages…

    no never used it before and not changed any file permissions

    Did you installed kdebase-workspace-consolekit?

    no i did not try installing this package, because in AUR package description it says its for non-systemd systems

    There is also an Archwiki about consolekit

    i read the wiki and tried to install AUR package consolekit-git but i got unable to build error. the wiki also redirects to ConsoleKit2 on github, but its not there on yaourt, so maybe Arch does not support it…

    I’m not sure if someone else use those packages…

    do you think i should try kdebase-workspace-consolekit anyway?

    thanks!
